Line 1: Line 1:
 +A type of immunological reaction carried out by cytotoxic T cells. A cell infected with foreign [[antigens]],​ possibly through viral infection, presents the antigen on the surface of the cell bound to a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) [[protein]]. The T cell receptor recognizes both the antigen and the MHC protein and consequently may attack the infected cell or invading extracellular particles. Compare HUMORAL RESPONSE.
