Flashcards in Cells and Organs Of The Immune System Deck (46)
Two major lineages:
Myeloid precursor and lymphoid precursor
Two types of T helper cells:
TH1 cells help the CD8+pre-cytotoxic cells.
TH2 cells help B cells
Type of the immune system responsible for the maturation of antigen-reactive cells.
Type of immune system responsible for antigen contact and response
Two main type of tissue that disposes worn-out bloodness
Two main type of tissue that contains the lymphoid tissue
Large white cells that can engulf and digest marauding microorganism and other antigenic particles. Some have the ability to present antigen to lymphocytes
Monocyte and macrophage
Other antigen-presenting cells;
B cells, macrophage, type 1 & 2 dendritic cells
Irregularly shoed wbc. Have long threadlike tentacles that enmesh lymphocytes and antigens. Can be found in spleen.
These are dendritic cells that travel in the skin, picking up antigen and transporting it to lymph nodes. Found in pancreas
They play a key role in acute inflammatory response
It is a noncirculating counterpart of the basophil. Located in the lungs, skin, tongue, and linings of the nose and intestinal tract. Responsible for the symptoms of allergy.
F: SRBC receptor, t cell adhesion/ activation
Co-recognition of MHC class 2 with TCR, primary receptor of HIV retrovirus
Involved in signaling through TCR and BCR
Involved in T cell proliferation, cell adhesion
Co-recognition of MHC class 1 with TCR
Regulation of B cell growth and proliferation
Granulocytes neutrophil only
Receptor for LPS and LBS
Mediates signal transduction on NK cells
Signals transduction regulating B cell responsiveness
Involved in B cell proliferation/activation, part of the signal transduction complex
Regulates IgE synthesis, mediates cytotoxicity by macrophage and eosinophil
Involved in T cell and C cell activation/proliferation
T cell co-stimulatory signal
Regulatory B cell
