Week 5 Tuesday, September 20, 2016 1:01 PM  Anatomical barriers to infection ○ Level 1:  Skin- most important..many microbes on it, but don’t let them inside(unless wounded) □ 3rd degree burns- most ppl die bc no longer have skin barrier so get many infections  Mucus- get microbes out of body (out nose or into stomach acid to kill them)  Tears- salty so keeps microbe lvls down. Enzymes in tears kill microbes  Peristalsis- in intestines, moves microbes through ○ Secretions from body, general proteins to kill unwanted things  Lysozyme- tears, skin.. Degrades cell wall of bacteria  Lactoferrin- tears, skin.. holds iron & prevents from being taken up by microbes(so cant grow as fast)  Other proteins: □ defensins, cathelicidins- from skin, degrade cell walls □ Psoriasin- peptide from skin cells, somewhat specific even tho innate(anomaly)  Put pepetide with staf/ecoli… staf grows on plate but not ecoli bc peptide kills it □ Calprotectin- kills staf but not ecoli  Phagocytosis- eating foreign cells ○ Steps:  Bacterium becomes attached to membrane evaginations called pseudopodia  Bacterium ingested- forms phagosome  Phagosome(microbe inside vesicle) fuses w lysosome(have hydrolytic enzymes to break things down)  Bacterium killed and digested by lysosomalenzymes  Digestion products are released from cells ○ ROS(reactive oxygen species)- create hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide inside lysosomes  To eliminate them to use oxygen, expose microbes to them and proteins are degreaded, lipids & dna come apart(why they are in lysosome bc has ways to deal with it) ○ ID of pathogen  Prevent pathogen access to deep tissues  On microbes or self cells: □ PAMPs (pathogen associated molecular patterns)  Part of iis but antigen part of sis □ DAMPs( damage " " ")- in self cells when has been damaged  On immune cells- PRRs (pattern recognition receptors)- recognize PAMPs/DAMPs □ Toll-like receptors(TLRs)  Ex) drosophilia- toll mutations("weird"):back to front axis rearranged ◊ Involved in activation of iis ◊ Tested resistance to fungus(aspergillus)- normals could resist, toll mutation ones were killed.. Realized protein affected location and immune system(haveno sis, only iis)  Similar proteins in verts: TLRs ◊ Major PRR ◊ Dimer, EC leucine rich domains that bind PAMPs & DAMPs ◊ Found on macs & DCs ◊ TIR domain Many diff TLRS:  Many diff TLRS: ◊ TL2: binds 2 things below(mycobac and yeast)  Lipoproteins  Zymosan ◊ TLR4: binds bac and binds LPS to bring it in  LPS- component of cell wall of gram neg bacteria ◊ TLR5- combining flagellin makes flagella(mvmt)  Flagellin ◊ TLR7/TLR8: rna w particular motifs and modifications to viruses  ssRNA  Location helps det what each TLR will bind ◊ Plasma memb(outside cell)- TLR4, TLR5 ◊ Endosome/lysosome(inside cell)- TLR7/8  Endosomes- phagosomes when they are in cell- have hooks to bind internal things – Face inside cell(to get dna/rna), but TIR domain in cytoplasm  TIR domains recruit adaptors--> specificity ◊ Diff adaptor proteins lead to diff events  Mac can tell t & b cells what it bound to when certain TLR bound ◊ Pathways:  NF-kb  MAPK  IRF(interferon regulating factor) ◊ Intracellular TLRs--> IFN synth □ RIG1-like receptors- recognize viral dsRNAs  Cytosolic PRRs.. RNA helicases  Pathways: ◊ Major response: Antiviral IFN responses(IL1/IL18) mac response & notify neighbors- virus ◊ Proinflamm cytokines □ NOD-like receptors(NLRs)  Cytosolic  Activated by PAMPs  Antiviral IFN resp(IL1/IL18)  Signaling pathways then occur(mac brings in cell, lysosome, activated, release cytokines, etc) □ Signaling pathways of PRR: activate many genes  Anitmicrobial peptides(defensins, cathelicidins)  Type 1 IFNs (potent antiviral activity)  Cytokines(inflammIL1, TNFa, IL6)  Chemokines  Inflamm resp-rx to any traumatic tissue event (redness, warmth, swelling, pain, loss of fxs)… iis ○ Chief fxs:  Mobilization/attraction  Repair- DAMPs come in bc self cells damaged..macs come in to phagocytose damages self cells  Destroy/blockmicrobes  .. If glass cuts you, resident sentinel cells release chemoattractantsand vasoactive factors to inc blood flow and capillary permeability, permeable capillaries allow influx of fluid(exudate) & cells, bac gets in so chemotaxis brings neutrophils/phagocytes to destory bac ○ Bigger inflamm resp--> fever  Pyrogen resets hypothalamic "thermostat" □ Muscles shake to inc heat production □ Dec heat loss thru vasoconstriction  Fever benefits: inhibits multiplication, impedes bac nutrition, inc metabolism & immune rxs/phagocytosis ○ Later stages  Proinflamm cytokines(IL1, TNFa, IL6..bring in iis cells)  Inc synth/secretion of antimicrobial proteins □ Mannose-binding lectin(MBL)- component of complement □ Complement- 30+ proteins that punch holes in cell walls  Proinflamm cytokines(IL1, TNFa, IL6..bring in iis cells)  Inc synth/secretion of antimicrobial proteins □ Mannose-binding lectin(MBL)- component of complement □ Complement- 30+ proteins that punch holes in cell walls  Imp cells in iis: ○ NK cells- from same lymphocyte lineage as b & t cells but are iis not sis  Infections(viral), cancer, damaged cells  Kill self cells when activated □ Like innate versions of CD8 T cells  Know to kill cell when: □ Activating receptor- binds activating ligand on cell it finds □ Inhibitory receptor(MHC)- not present on most cancerous/virally infected cells  Viruses/cancer cells downregulate MHC mols (bc they put antigens on surface) □ If cell has both receptors, cell is fine □ If cell only has activating receptors that can be bound to, cell is destroyed  When activated- cause apoptosis from caspase cascade □ Produce cytokines-->macrophageactivation--> TH1 response  Initial activation inc pop/activity of responding NK cells--> greater response later □ Resembles memory even tho iis cell  Regulation of iis response ○ Mutations in PRRs inc susceptibility to infections ○ When system remains abnormally "turned on", contributes to inflamm disorders  Bac in blood, LPS on gram neg ○ Ways for microbes to evade iis response  Avoid detection of PRRs: bac change flagella in way TLR5 cant bind  Block signal pathways: west nile blocks NF-kb mvmt into nucleus  Prevent killing or inhibition response: salmonila brought into cell and bursts out of phagosome before lysozome fuses
