  24. Explain the 4 features of specific immune response:
    • Specificity: an antigen causes antibodies to be made, which are specific to the antigen only
    • Diversity: B & T cells can recognize millions of antigens
    • Self-tolerance: protein receptors on cell mem allow recognition of self or not

    • Plasma cells
    • Cytotoxic T cells
  28. The secondary immune response takes ___ days to occur after exposure to the antigen and results in a greater magnitude of response which is more prolonged
  29. 2 types of specific immune responses & which wb cells are involved

    • Cell-mediated
    • T cells
    • Cytotoxic T cells
  32. General diff b/w humoral (B cells) and cell-mediated (T cells) immunity
    • Humoral (B cells): antibodies
    • Cell-mediated (T cells): cell lysis
  33. How are immunoglobins made?
    When a B cell contacts an antigen or foreign molec, it becomes a plasma cell which secrete immunoglobins
  34. Antibodies which mark invaders for destruction
  35. What causes B cell proliferation and what two types of cell do the B cells become?
    Binding of an antigens to lymphocytes, which then either become a memory B cell, or a plasma cell (which secrete antibodies that bind to antigen to get rid of it)
  36. WB cell which secretes antibodies which bind to antigen to get rid of it
    Plasma cells (made from B cells)
  37. 4 methods of antigen disposal by antibodies
    • Neutralization
    • Agglutination
    • Opsonization
    • Complement activation
  38. Neutralization of pathogen is done by the antibody by:
    binding to it and blocking it's activity
  39. Agglutination gets rid of pathogen by:
    Clumping multiple pathogens together by antibodies
  40. Opsonization gets rid of pathogen by:
    phagocytes engulfing the pathogen-antibody complex, which is more efficient than engulfing the pathogen alone
  41. Complement activation gets rid of a pathogen by:
    antibodies binding to pathogen, creating a complement protein cascade which eventually lyse the pathogen cell

    their functions?
    • Cytotoxic T cells: puncture hole & lyse pathogen cell
    • Helper T cells: signal to B & T cells there's infection
    • Suppressor T cells: keep immune system in check
  44. secrete hole-puncturing molecs which lyse pathogen cell
    Cytotoxic T cells
  45. secrete cytokines which tell B & other T cells there's an infection
    Helper T cells
  46. secrete cytokines which suppress B & other T cells; keeps immune system in check
    Suppressor T cells
  47. What is antigen presentation?
    When a MHC molec goes inside the pathogen cell, binds to fragment in there (an antigen), and pushes it out onto the cell surface so that the receptors on a T cell recogize the antigen
  48. Which type of MHC to T cells recognize? What
    type do B cells recognize?
    • Cytotoxic T cells: MHC I
    • Helper T cells: MHC II
    • B cells: MHC II

    • Class I MHC: all nucleated cells
    • Class II MHC: macrophages, activated B & T cells, thymus cells
  50. When MHC II-anitgen complex binds to helper T cell, the helper T cell secretes ____
  51. When MHC I-antigen complex binds to cytotoxic T cell, the cytotoxic T cell then ____
    destroys the virus-infected cell or cancer cell in which the MHC I-antigen complex is bound
  52. What does MHC have to do with knowing which cells are our own and which are foreign?
    The MHC molecs are unique to an individual person (HLA- human leukocyte antigen) and are unique to each type of tissue
  53. Universal blood donor:
    Universal blood recipient
    • donor: O
    • recipient: AB
  54. Blood types are due to ___ on surface of RBCs
  55. A person with Type B blood has ___ antigens on RBC surface and will not produce antibodies to ___ antigen. Why?
    • B; B
    • they are recognized as self
  56. How are helper T cells activated?
    Binding of MHC II-antigen complex on macrophage or B cell to the T cell causes the macrophages or B cell to secrete cytokines (which causes maturation of helper T cells)
  57. Cause maturation of helper T cells
  58. What do helper T cells do?
    Differentiate into cytokines which act on other wb cells & cause their maturation
  59. What is the difference between active and
    passive immunity?
    • Active involves memory; body develops immunity over time
    • Passive does not involve memory, immunity stays as long as antibodies are present, such as when mother passes them to fetus
