Immune sytem

  1. immune system functions
    protect againt pathogen, foreign material, remove damged or dead cells, remove abnormal cells
  2. Pathogens
    • bacteria
    • viruses
    • worms
    • fungi
    • parasites
    • protozoa

  6. lymph nodes
    • remove impurities and pathogens from lymph 
    • lymphocyte sotrage and phagocytosis-chew down any debris
  7. non specific immunity(innate)
    • quick
    • external defenses
    • inflammation
    • interferon-early response to viral infection
    • natural killer cells
    • complement system
  8. specific-required

    • Chemical Barriers
    • stomach acid
    • lysozyme is secreted fluids
  10. Image Upload 1
    • realease chemical signals such as histamine
    • dilation causes phagocytes to area
    • phagocytes (macrophages and neutrophils) consume bacteria and cell debris; tissue heals 
  11. what does histamine cause in the inflammation response
    • increase blood flow to site
    • increase permeability of capillaries
    • increase WBC/ protein to site
    • increase fluid (swelling)
  12. Inflammation
    tissue trauma-> histamine release -> pyremia-heat-> dilation of arterioles and capillaries-> increase capillary permeanility-> neutrphil in and out of blood vessel ( leukocytosis)-> inflammatory exudate-> monocyte and fibrin 
  13. inflammatory chemicals

  18. Interferon
    released by infected cells to help prevent infection of other healthy cells 
  19. four steps in an immune response

    • surpressor T cells- limit response 
    • NK cells
  26. B lymphocytes
    • kill free viruses 
    • ammunoglobins attached to B cell. Bind virus on ammunoblobin to activate B cell.  
    • clonal expansion form plasma cells 
    • plasma cell produce antibodies ( bind free virus)
    • memory cells 
    • faster, stronger secondary response 
    • opsonin-> antibody that sensititizes antigen to phagocytosis
  27. during secondary immune response, antibody concentration in plasma _______
    increases, dur to memory cells after first exposure
  28. binding of anitbodied to antigens inactivate antigens by:
    Image Upload 2
  29. five classes of antibodies (aka immunoglobulins or gamma globulins)
    • IgG- most common, secondary response IgG (more specific)
    • IgA- in saliva, tears breast milk. not sure about function
    • IgE-involved in allergic response. gets inlfammation
    • IgM- primary response. More general
    • IgD-surface of B cells- role unclear
    • if have enough IgG put in you can help cure allergy
  30. function of antibodies

  32. activation of T lymphocytes 
    • cell bind to T lymphocyte
    • signal transduction activates it
  33. MHC class 1 proteins
    • on all nucleated cells of body
    • Recognized by cytotoxic T cells 
  34. MHC class 2 proteins 
    • only on antigen presenting cells
