Lymphatic System 3

Bio 169

Adaptive (Specific) Defenses *Specific resistance(immunity) *Responds to specific antigens *With coordinated action of T Cells(Thymus) and B Cells(Bone Marrow with NK Cells)
Two Types Of Adaptive Defense *Cell Mediated immunity (T cells deciding who to kill) *Antibody Mediated immunity (B Cell)
Cell Mediated Immunity *T Cells *Defends against abnormal cells and pathogens inside cells *Use perforin and granzymes
Antibody Mediated (Humoral-Bone Marrow) Immunity *B Cells *Defends against pathogens(antigens) in the body fluids *Use antibodies
Forms of Immunity *Innate(Born with) *Adaptive(acquire these these through life)
Innate Immunity *Present at birth
Adaptive Immunity *After Birth 1. Active Adaptive- antibodies develop after exposure to antigen a. Naturally acquired active immunity b.Artificially induced active immunity 2.Passive Adaptive- antibodies are transferred from another source a. Naturally acquired passiv
1. Active Immunity Types -Naturally acquired active immunity From environmental exposure to pathogens(ex. kids playing in dirt -Artificially induced active immunity Through vaccines containing attenuated(weak) patogens
2. Passive Immunity Types - Naturally acquired passive immunity Antibodies acquired from their mother -Artificially induced passive immunity By an injection of antibodies(ex. injection against rabies)
Four Properties of Adaptive(acquired) Immunity 1. Specificity 2. Versatility 3.Memory 4. Tolerance
Specificity -Each T and B Cell respond only to a specific antigen and ignores all others
Versatility -Any antigen any time -Active lymphocytes makes clones(create more lymphocytes) of itself that are sensitive to the same antigen
Memory -Two groups of cells are made when antigen encountered: active(now) and inactive(later) -Inactive group does not wake up until you are exposed a second time and then they remember antigen and strikes with faster, longer, more effective attack
Tolerance -Immune system ignores normal antigens (self-antigens)
T Cells -Provide cell mediated immunity -Defends against abnormal cells and pathogens inside cells
B Cells -Provide Anti-Body mediated immunity -Defend against antigens and pathogens in body fluids
Major Types of T Cells 1.Cytotoxic T Cells(Tc) 2.Memory T Cells 3.Helper T Cells(Th) 4.Suppressor T Cells(Ts)
1. Cytotoxic T Cells(Tc) -Responsible for cell mediated immunity
2. Memory T Cells -Produced and activated if pathogen occurs again later
3. Helper T Cells(Th) -Stimulates responses of T cells and B cells, especially active B cells
4. Suppressor T Cells(Ts) -Inhibit stop function of T cells and B cells when attack should end
Antigen Recognition by T Cells 1. CD Markers- -also called cluster of differentiation markers 2. CD3 Receptor(receive) Complex -Found in all T cells -Present at all times
Two Types of CD Markers 1. CD8 Markers- -found on cytotoxic T cells and suppressor T cells (Goes and Kills) -Respond to antigens on Class l MHC proteins 2. CD4 Markers- -Found on Helper T Cells (Tell B cells to make antibodies) -Respond to antigens on Class ll MHC protie
CD8 and CD4 -Both bind to CD3 receptor complex -Prepare cell for activation
Antigen Presentation T Cells cant recognize antigen unless it is bound to a glycoprotein in the plasma membrane of another cell and presented
Membrane Histocompatibility Complex(MHC) proteins -Also called Human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) -Has a narrow groove that binds an antigen for presentation to a T cell -Class l for cytotoxic T cells + Class ll for Helper T cells
Two Classes of MHC proteins 1. Class l -Found in membranes of all nucleated body cells -Mature cytotoxic T cells respond to MHC l 2. Class ll -Found in membranes of antigen-presenting cells(APs) -Mature Helper T cells respond to MHC ll

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
