Flashcards in IAHI [Week 2] Deck (44):
1

What are 3 characteristics of germ line encoded receptors and give 2 examples?

1. Heritable, set order, and the same in each cell.
2. PRRs (TLR) and MHC

2

What TFs are activated from a PAMP binding a PRR, what cytokines get released, and what is the body's response?

1. NFκB or IRF3
2. TNFα, IL-1, and IL-6
3. Activate neutrophils and initiate fever

3

What secretes G-CSF and GM-CSF?

Macrophages and T Helper

4

What is the effect of G-CSF and GM-CSF?

Induce proliferation in bone marrow and the egress of PMNs

5

What cells secrete IL-8 and what is its function?

1. Macrophages, endothelial cells, airway smooth muscle cells
2. Help pull PMNs out of circulation to site of infection (chemotaxis)

6

What are the main 4 signaling molecules that control neutrophil influx?

G-CSF, GM-CSF, IL-8 and chemokines

7

What cells secrete chemokines and what are their effects?

1. Macrophages, DC, endothelial cells, T lymphocytes, fibroblasts, and platelets
2. Promote migration of neutrophils to infected site via a gradient, activate integrin so PMNs form stable adhesions

8

Do chemokines function in a cell contact dependent or independent manner?

Cell contact independent

9

What are 3 characteristics of receptors produced by genetic recombination and what are two examples?

1. Inherit segments, Pre "clonal expansion" each cells have different arrangements, not necessarily the same as parents.
2. TCR and Ig

10

How are chemokines classified?

By their biochemical structure - location of Cys residues

11

In concert with TNFα and IL-1, what else promotes the 4 stages of PMN extravasation?

Chemokines

12

Is T cell activation cell contact dependent or independent?

Cell contact dependent

13

After T cell activation what 3 things result from the signaling pathway?

1. CD40L expression -> B cell Ig class switching
2. IL-2 and IL-2R expression - proliferation
3. DNA synthesis - division

14

IL-2 is a cytokine that provides ____________, cell contact independent, ____________________ feedback to the T helper cell producing it.

1. Autocrine
2. Pro-proliferative

15

What is the 2nd signal required for T cell activation?

Interaction of CD28 and B7

16

What are two "CD" names for B7?

CD80 and CD86

17

What is the function of CTLA-4?

It inhibits T cell proliferation by competing with B7 to provide a "stop" signal thru CD28

18

What are 3 examples of APC derived signals and what type of T cell do they promote?

1. IL-12 - Th1 (Via Th expression of IFNγ)
2. TGFβ - Treg (suppresses Th1 & Th2)
3. IL-10 - Promotes Treg

19

What happens if the APC doesn't provide a cytokine?

Default to Th2 cell

20

What three autocrine signals are released by Th cells?

1. IFNγ
2. TGFβ
3. IL-10

21

What is the effect of Th released IFNγ?

1. Promotes Th1- more IFNγ
2. Activates macrophages
3. Class switch IgG
4. Suppresses Th2 devleopment

22

What is the effect of Th released TGFβ and IL-10?

Furthers Treg development

23

What 2 cytokines do Th2 cells release and what is their effect?

1. IL-4: Class switch IgG1, IgE; suppress Th1
2. IL-5: Class switch IfA; promote eosinophilia

24

What 3 cytokines direct Th17 development?

TGFβ, IL-6, and IL-23

25

TGFβ is primarily considered an anti-inflammatory cytokine, what is the exception?

In combination with IL-6 and IL-23 it promotes the inflammatory Th17 subset

26

What is overabundance of Th17 associated with? Deficiency?

1. Autoimmunity
2. Susceptibility to bacterial infection

27
