Flashcards in Chapter 17 Adaptive Immunity Deck (50):
1

Foreign pieces or shapes that your immune system 'sees' or responds to are called ________.

antigens

2

Who does the APC (antigen presenting cell) present the antigen to?

T-Helper Cells
(looking for the correct T-Helper cell )

3

Name the 3 cells that are the APC's

* Dendritic Cells
* Macrophages

4

All of the APC's have a molecule on their surface called _____

MHC II

5

What is MALT, also known as Peyer's Patch, and where is it located?

Mucous-associated lymphatic tissue
Found underneath the lining of the mucous membrane

Name the 2 primary immune organs

* Thymus
* Bone Marrow

7

Every T-cell we make is unique.
true or false?

true

8

List the 4 secondary immune organs

* Lymph nodes
* Tonsils
* Spleen
* MALT (peyer's patch)

9

Name the two types of T-cells
(CD4, CD8)

T helper (CD4)
T-cytotoxic (CD8)

10

Which type of T-cells get activated by the Cell-mediated Pathway?

T-cytotoxic cells (CD8)

11

Which Pathway, Cell-mediated or Humoral, is best for intracellular?

Cell-mediated Pathway

12

Which Pathway, Cell-mediated or Humoral, is best for extracellular?

Humoral Pathway

13

What type of cells does the Humoral Pathway activate?
What do these cells produce?

*B cells
*produce antibodies

14

Which cells have MHC I and display it when something is going on inside of the cell?

all nucleated cells ( except for RBC's)

15

Which arm (pathway) of the immune system will go into action when there is something going on inside of the cell like a virus is inside?

Intracellular
(cell-mediated arm)

16

T-Helper secretes a special blend of _________ and they will be recognized by it's match T-cytotoxic cell (it will recognize the specific blend)

cytokines

17

Once the T-cytotoxic cells activate (by T helper finding it's match), the activated T cytotoxic cell begins to multiply and build a T cytotoxic cell army. This is known as what?

Clonal Expansion

18

Which is the Humoral arm, extracellular or intracellular?

extracellular

19

Does the T cytotoxic "army" (clonal expansion) leave the lymph node or stay in the lymph node?

leave the lymph node

20

When the cell-mediated (intrcellular) arm and/or the humoral (extracellular) arm starts the first step in immune defense, where is this taking place up until the clonal expression occurs?

in the Lymph Nodes

21

What does the special blend of cytokines secreted by the T Helper cell do for it?

helps it find it's perfect match

22

Once the T cytotoxic army is released during cell-mediated defense, what do they do?

try and find their "match" which is the infected cell displaying MHC I

23

Once the T cytotoxic army cell finds it's match (the infected cell displaying MHC I, what does it release and what happens?

it snuggles up with infected cell, then releases cytokines that tell the infected cell to kill itself (apoptosis)

24

For first exposure to an invader/pathogen, how long does it take for our cell-mediated defense to build up it's T cytotoxic army?

3-4 days

25

How long does it take for memory cells involved in cell-mediated defense to build their army during their 2nd exposure?

12 hours

26

What happens if a T cytotoxic cell (from army) still can't find it's match?

it kills itself
(apoptosis)

27

Are some viruses capable of stopping the MHC I from presenting itself on an infected cell?

yes

28

Both Cell-mediated defense and Humoral defense start out the same way, with a T Helper cell. but with Cell-mediated, the T helper goes looking for a T cytotoxic cell match and wants to activate it and with Humoral, the T Helper is trying to find a _-____

B-cell

29

With cell-mediated, what does the T Helper cell do to find it's T cytotoxic match?

secretes cytokines, a chemical signal
(secretes and then waits for a match, more passive approach)

30

With Humoral defense, what does the T Helper cell do to find it's B-cell match?

physically touch B-cells to see if they're a match
(must go out and actively look)

31

Give another name for an activated T cytotoxic cell

CD8

32

Other than physically touching, what other thing is needed to activate a B-cell?

B-cell blend of cytokines from T-Helper cell

33

What do activated B-cells produce and shed?
What is the name given for an activated B-cell?

*antibodies
*Plasma cells

34

What do the antibodies that B-cells shed do to bacteria?

kill it

35

Once the Plasma cells (activated B cells) are done doing their job, what happens?

they kill themselves (apoptosis)
a few stay behind and become memory cells that continue making little antibodies

36

During Humoral Defense, how long after first exposure does it take to build the Plasma cell army (clonal expansion)?

7-10 days (to make antibodies)

37

During Humoral Defense, how long after 2nd exposure, does clonal expansion (building the activated B-cell army) take?

12 hours

38

Are the memory cells that are created by receiving vaccines, just as effective as the memory cells you create by being exposed to actual pathogens?

no,
there are way less created

39

IFN, TNF, IL-2, IL-4, are all signaling molecules of immune cells better known as _________

cytokines

40

What happens to T cytotoxic cells once they have cleared out all of the infected cells?

most kill themselves but some are left to become memory T cells

41

What does Humoral immunity begin with?

antigen presentation to T-Helper cells
(extracellular)

42

What is the first step in cell-mediated immunity involving APC?

APC (antigen presenting cell) presents antigen to many T-Helper cell receptors (until correct TH match is found)

43

Every T cell we make is unique and all of their t cell receptors are unique/different as well.
