lymphokines

CYTOKINES produced by lymphocytes. Lymphokines attract MACROPHAGES to the site of foreign material and activate them to kill organisms, cause other T cells to clone and provide other cells with protection against virus invasion. They include INTERFERONS, CHEMOTACTIC factor, transfer factor and INTERLEUKIN-2.

lymphokines

(lim´fəkīnz´),
n.pl the soluble substances, released by sensitized lymphocytes on contact with specific antigens, that help effect cellular immunity by stimulating activity of monocytes and macrophages. See also cytokine.
