Description:Magnified 1125X, this thin film photomicrograph of a blood smear, revealed the presence of a leukocyte (white blood cell, WBC) known as a lymphocyte.
Lymphocytes are small white blood cells that are uniform in appearance, but very diverse in function. Collectively, they are responsible for antibody production, direct cell-mediated killing of virus-infected cells and tumor cells, and for the regulation of virtually every other component of the mammalian immune system.
