CD4 AND CD8 T CELLS
CD4 and CD8 positive T cells are the major T cell subpopulations in our adaptive immune system. CD4 positive T cells function as "helper cells". CD8 positive T cells are usually called cytotoxic T cells, functioning to directly kill virus-infected cells and cancer center. OMIPs not only profile CD4 and CD8 T cells in general, but also dive deeper into the function of these cells by including different functional or exploratory markers.
