cytokines How do the lymphatic and immune systems work together B cells T cells and macrophages often take up residence in lymphoid organs and tissue Lymphoid organs and tissues trap pathogens for the immune system Lymphoid organs activate cells of the immune system Describe the roles of phagocytic and nonphagocytic cells in innate immunity Monocytes Transform into macrophages in connective tissues Play multiple roles in immune system First responders ingest other cells and cellular debris Cytotoxic effects secrete toxic substances onto cells too large to ingest Antigen presenting cells Neutrophils Concentrated in connective tissues blood especially generally need to be recruited Target bacteria Phagocytosis amp digestion Respiratory bursts Detection of bacteria results in discharging lysosome enzymes that form a chemical killing cloud around the neutrophil kills large numbers of bacteria but can also damage tissue Eosinophils Concentrated in mucous membranes Target parasites amp allergens Tapeworms roundworms killed by producing superoxide hydrogen peroxide neurotoxins Phagocytose antigen antibody complexes Basoths Secrete chemicals that aid mobility of other leukocytes Mediate the in ammatory response Leukotrienes active and attract neutrophils and eosinophils Histamine vasodilator increases local blood ow Heparin prevents clot formation Mast cells are similar in action but nonmobile Lymphocytes Natural Killer cells The Granzyme kiss of death NK cells do not recognize antigens Bind to cells that appear irregular or are bound to antibodies I Hi will

neutrophils 0 remains accumulate as pus either absorbed or accumulates in abscess under dermal layer how does adaptive immunity differ from innate immunity 2 characteristics distinguish the adaptive from the innate immune response speci city response is directed against a particular pathogen distinguished by its unique antigens memory when reexposed to the same pathogen the body often reacts so quickly that there is no noticeable iHness what are antigens epitopes immunogens and haptens antigen any molecule that is potentially capable of producing antibodies against it epitopes regions of the antigen that interact with antibodies ie 1 antigen can have more than 1 antibody recognize it because of multiple epitopes summarize the functions of the cells involved in adaptive immunity describe the roles of the various T cells involved in cell mediated adaptive immunity describe the roles of B cells and the various antibodies they produce in humoral adaptive immunity
