1. Is there a specific t-lymphocyte, or group of t-lymphocytes, that lead to the circulation of TNF-A?

2. Macrophages also lead to the circulation of TNF-A. Is there a percentage breakdown of it's signallers?

3. Are these cells responsible for the synthesis of TNF-A, or is that done in the thalmus?
