Flashcards in Immune system cells Deck (19):
1

recognises antigens presented by MHC class II and expresses CD4+
major source of IL-2

helper T cells

2

helper T cells- adaptive or innate immune response?

adaptive

3

recognises antigens presented by MHC class I and expresses CD8+

cytotoxic T cells

4

cytotoxic T cells - adaptive or innate immune response?

adaptive

5

acts as antigen presenting cell
major cell of the humoural immune response

B cells

6

B cells - adaptive or innate immune response?

adaptive

7

produce large amount of antibody specific to a particular antigen
differentiated from B cells

plasma cells

8

Plasma cells - adaptive or innate immune response

adaptive

9

primary phagocytoic cell in acute inflammation
Multi lobed nucleus
most common WBC

neutrophil

10

release histamine during IMMUNE response
expresses IgE receptors on cell surface
Bi-lobed nucleus

Basophil

11

Neutrophil - adaptive or innate response?

innate

12

basophil - adaptive or innate?

innate

13

releases histamine during ALLERGIC response
expresses IgE receptors on cell surface
similar function to basophils, but not basophils 😁🤷🏼‍♂️

mast cell

14

mast cell - adaptive or innate

innate

15

defends against protozoan and helminthic infections
bi-lobed nucleus

eosinophil

16

differentiates into macrophage
kidney shaped nucleus

monocyte

17

involved in phagocytosis
acts as antigen presenting cell
major source of IL-1

macrophage

18

induces apoptosis in virally infected and tumour cells

natural killer cell

19

acts as antigen presenting cell

dendritic cell
