study set

Inate immunity involves what..... -Chemical -Processes -Receptor -Barriers cells
TLR Toll -like receptor
PAMPs pathogen associated molecular pattern
DAMPs Damage associated molecular pattern
Defense mechanism Keeps the microbe out of the body through external barriers
Non specific defense mechanism INTERNAL defense that combat all invading microbes (inate)
Adaptive mechanism Directly assaults an immune response against specific microbes
Inate immunity non specific defense - LACK MEMORY (0 to 12 hrs response time)
Acute phase reactants produced by tissue macrophages act on cell close to origin chemokine production
Chemokine recruit WBC to site
what are the four chemokine families? C, CC, CXC, CX3C
Granulocytes are..... -Neutrophil -Eosinophil -Basophil -Mast cell
Neutrophil Most abundant leukocyte -Phagocyte - releases substance in blood
Eosinophil 2-4% leukocyte -kills parasites -phagocytic
Basophils 0-1% leukocytes -release inflamatory response
Mast cells < 1% leukocyte release histamine allergic response
Lympocytes are........ adaptive immunity ------- NK cells
NK cells are considered to be what Inate immunity
Arangulocytes Monocyte macrophage dentritic cells NKC
Monocytes in the blood -phagocytic macrophage when moves to tissues
macrophages -tissue type -phagocytic -APC's antigen presenting cells
Dentritic cells collect antigen from tissues - bring to lympocytes -APC's
NKC natural killer cells
Ruber Red
Calor heat
Dolor pain
tumor swell
