The T cells, which are involved in cellular immunity, depend on the thymus gland for their development. Thymosin is essential for the conversion of prethymic cells into mature thymus cells and the development of immunocompetence, the ability to respond to antigenic stimulation. The thymus is also important for the neonatal production of antibodies. The thymus gland is one of the points of interaction between the endocrine, neural and immune systems (see Chapter 13). 6 THE HEART As well as its function as a pump for the blood, the heart is an endocrine gland.
