Adaptive immune

Adaptive immune system: cells and functions

Cell/response Function
B cells B cells, also known as B lymphocytes, are a type of white blood cell of the lymphocyte subtype. They function in the humoral immunity component of the adaptive immune system by secreting antibodies.
Memory cells Preserve specific genetic code for a successful antibody. If the antigen returns there will be a prepared secondary immune response that is stronger and better than the first.
Effector cells Effector cells are the relatively short-lived activated cells that defend the body in an immune response. Effector B cells are called plasma cells and secrete antibodies,
Humoral response Allows your body to achieve immunity by encountering pathogens either randomly or on purpose.
