The secondary or anamnestic response causes proliferation of what antibodies? IgG
The primary response causes proliferation of what antibodies? IgM
Immunoglobulins are part of what type of immunity? Humoral
Which lymphocytes are responsible for cellulare immunity, tissue graft rejection, delayed hypersensitivity reactions and immunloogic surveillance? T lymphocytes
A low molecular-weight substance that rarely stimulates the production or antibodies, but can react with an antibody if present. Hapten
When can hapten ilicit an immune response? When attached to a carrier protein
An antigen that reacts with antibodies from within the same species. Alloantigen
An antibody produced in response to an antigen possessed by the same individual. Autoantibody
An antiboy produced in one species that reacts with an antigen from another species. Heterophile antibody
What is another name for a Heterophile antibody? xenoantibody
What immune antiboyd reacts best at 37C, resistant to treatment with sulfhydryl compounds, and often requires the addition of antihuman globulin to produce agglutination? IgG
Which of the immune antibodies is the largest, arranged in a pentamer, and cannot cross the placental barrier? IgM
Which immune antibody activates the complement cascade by way of the alternate pathway once aggregated? IgA
Which immune antibody is a reaginic antibody that binds to mast cells by the Fc portion and is associated with immediate hypersensitivity? IgE
How are the 5 classes of immunoglobulins distinguished? By their amino acids in the constant region of their heavy classes.
Which phenomenon is due to excess of antibody in relation to antigen, preventing the formation of a lattice? prozone due to antibody excess.
Which test for syphilis is primarily used for screening for the treponemal antibody; is sensitive but lacks specificity? RPR
Which laboratory test is specific and is used for a comfirmatory test when testing for the treponemal antigen? FTA-ABS
What substance is produced by the liver in inflammation, necrotic, and infectious diseases? CRP

Which type of blood group cells are used for antibody screening tests? Group O, Rh-pos
Why is it important that antiglobulin serum be added immediately after washing the cells? Cell bound IgG may detach from the red cells if delayed addition.
