They produce numerous cytokines

T helper cells produce a number of cytokines that affect other cells involved in both the cell-mediated and the humoral immune responses. T helper cells possess antigen-specific T-cell receptors (not antibodies) on their membranes. These cells recognize and interact with antigenic determinants that are associated with class II human leukocyte antigen (HLA) molecules on the surface of antigen-presenting cells. IL-1 is necessary for activation of T helper cells.
