A review of the main molecular events occurring during differentiation of T-lymphocytes in the thymus: T-cell specialization of early intrathymic precursors, formation and expression of antigen receptor, formation of antigen recognizing cell repertoire, and αβ/γβ- and CD4/CD8-commitment. The mechanisms of glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of thymocytes and its blockade during antigen-dependent activation are considered. A special attention is paid to the analysis of intracellular signals underlying the clonal selection of thymocytes.
