Certain subpopulations of T lymphoctyes show innate-like properties that distinguish them from conventional T cells and thus have been collectively termed innate T cells. Two extensively studied subsets of innate T cells implicated in pathogen detection are invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells and γδ T cells. Conventional T cells detect pathogens in a manner that is exquisitely antigen specific, based on discrimination of peptides bound to classical major histocompatibility complex (MHC… Expand
