Scope Note
T Lymphocytes with limited diversity of receptors (e.g., ALPHA E INTEGRINS) in the epidermis of the skin and the mucosal linings. They recognize common microbes via T-CELL RECEPTORS and PATHOGEN-ASSOCIATED MOLECULAR PATTERN MOLECULES and function as effector cells for INNATE IMMUNITY. Activation of intraepithelial lymphocytes is a marker for various gastrointestinal diseases (e.g., CELIAC DISEASE; HAIRY CELL LEUKEMIA; and ENTEROPATHY-ASSOCIATED T-CELL LYMPHOMA).
