Overview

Lymphocyte Development presents an extremely up-to-date account of molecular processes involved in the development of lymphocytes. This book is based in part on a graduate course taught by the author. Topics include the selection processes involved in lymphocyte maturation, immune receptor gene rearrangement, signaling pathways involved in cell cycle progression and apoptosis, and the transcriptional regulation of lymphoid ontogeny. The book covers B and T cell development, the differentiation of helper and cytotoxic T cells, and the development of Natural Killer cells. The book finishes with an account of the molecular basis of immunodeficiency syndromes. It will interest researchers in immunology, and it will be useful as a supplementary text for a graduate-level immunology course.
