how does cortisol suppress the immune system ?

Asked by निकोदिमुस 24th November 2017, 10:17 PM
Answered by Expert
T-lymphocyte cells are an essential component of cell-mediated immunity. T-cells respond to cytokine molecules called interleukins via a signaling pathway. Cortisol blocks T-cells from proliferating by preventing some T-cells from recognizing interleukin signals. This puts a weakening effect on imuune response which gradually suppressing them and ultimately lead to stress.
