Acute phase repsonse
BACTERIA induced MACROPHAGES to produce IL-6 and IL-1 -> hepatocytes -> acute phase proteins (C-reactive protein, mannose-binding lectin, SP-A and SP-D)
binds to bacterial and fungal cell walls
regions of 3D structure on an antigen that ABs bind
AB production to a specific antigen
Lipopolysaccarides on the surface of the bacterial cell wall
flagellar proteins of bacteria
a subclass of a bacterial species that differs in O- and H- antigens
antigen preparations to stimulae normal immune response (memory cel and secondary memory response)
AB binding to pathogens or antigens -> preventing harm (ie. binding to host)
AB binding -> changes surface of pathogen or antigen -> allows for phagocytosis
