MHC protiens are displayed for what reason: to differentiate between self and non self
Class I MHC protiens are found where: displayed on all cells of the body, except when taken over by microbes
Class II MHC protiens display: both self and pathogen protiens on Antigen Presenting Cells
The purpose of Class II MHC Protiens is to: Bring captured pathogens to lyphoid organs so T-cells may be activated
Lyphocytes orginate in what color bone marrow: red.
Lymphocytes that become T-cells are sent 'here'/ B lymphocytes remain 'here'. Thymus/Bone Marrow
