Abstract

With ever-improving methods of cell characterization, the field of immunology has enjoyed unprecedented opportunities to resolve distinctions between lymphocyte populations. However, this has led to a proliferation of "subset" designations that threatens to complicate and confuse clear identification of populations that share critical functional traits. This article discusses some of the challenges associated with a uniform approach to assigning subset designations to memory T-cell populations.
