The Role of Immunoreceptors
The nature of the main types of immunoreceptors is discussed with reference to current investigations which are starting to indicate their function and structure. The immunoreceptors of the lymphoid cells, mast cells and basophils are reviewed.
Key wordsImmunoreceptors Lymphocytes Mast cells Basophils Immunoglobulin
