Thymus - organ serving as the site of T cell differentiation.
Crohn's disease and myasthenia gravis: a possible role for thymectomy
Researchers recently identified a protein that appears to work by turning on in the thymus, which lies beneath the breast bone, the production of a wide array of proteins from the body's periphery. The discovery of the protein called "aire" could shed light not only on how the healthy immune system develops tolerance to its own proteins but also how tolerance is lost, as it is in diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease and other autoimmune illnesses.
