Bruises are cleared and clots dissolved by plasmin Produced by the liver as plasminogen Activated to plasmin by factor XII and some others 0 Phagocytic white blood cells also aid in removal 0 Blood Clotting Problems 0 Thromboembolism Abnormal clotting 0 To a vessel wall thrombus 0 Free oating emboli o Hemophilia Excessive bleeding as a result of clotting factor de ciency 80 lack of factor VII 0 Vitamin K de ciency Combines with 02 releasing free energy used to activate the clotting cascade Viruses vs Bacteria Viruses can be DNA or RNA 0 Example of RNA virus Rhinovirus cold 0 Example of DNA virus Herpes Virus 0 Requires a host 0 Can use a bacteria as a host Bacteria single celled organism with DNA no central nucleus 0 Can replicate without a host 0 Can uptake DNA from other bacteria either in snips or as a plasmid circle of DNA 0 Cannot infect a virus 1imilitiaes Bacteria Endogenous pyrogen responsible for the production of fever by causing the release of prostaglandins An increase in body temperature increases 0 Phagocytosis 0 Effects enzyme activity 0 Effects lipids and proteins Salicylates aspirintype drugs 0 Decrease histamine release decrease swelling redness and pain in ammatory responses 0 lnhibit prostaglandin production Glucocorticoids antiin ammatory drugs such as cortisol o Suppress the in ammatory process 0 Destroys lymphocytes decreases antibody production 0 Decreases improper immune responses Natural killer cells NK cells lymphocyte like cells that nonspeci cally destroy cancer cells and viruses Cytotoxic T cellscan only attack on speci c types of viruses and cancer cells it has previously been exposed to Membrane Attack Complex proteins produced by the liver C1C9 which activate each other to form a pore in the membrane C5C9 of the microorganism The pore formed by C5 through C9 allows the transport of solutes and results ite lysis of h e membrane 4 e2 pores attack l 199 Wadsworth Publishing Comp nyJ ITF39 complex Complement System 0 Activated by carbohydrate chains on the surface of microorganisms and by exposure to antibodies against a speci c invader o Complement System Components Chemotaxinsattract phagocytes Opsonins bind microbes increasing phagocytosis Histamine vasodilation vascular changes Kinins reinforce in ammatory responses Antigen a large complex molecule that triggers a speci c immune response Antibody produced in the ER of plasma cells released into the blood stream known as gamma globulins or immunoglobulins each recognizes a speci c an gen Antibody Subclasses o lgM B cells surface receptor for antigen attachment and secreted in early plasma cell response 0 lgG produced when the body is reexposed to antigen 0 lgE protects against parasitic worms and mediates common allergic responses 0 lgA found in secretions tears milk digestion respiratory and genitourinary systems 0 lgD present on the surface of B cells Antibody protein structure 0 Y shaped 2 long heavy chains 2 short light chains Arm regions determine speci c antibody binding Tail region determines what the antibody will do once the antigen is bound Primary antibody responses takes several days requires exposure to antigen and production of antibodies Secondary antibody responses faster longer lasting response mediated via memory cells Activate immunity production of antibodies due to exposure to an antigen OOOO 0 Passive immunity transfer of antibodies as a mother to a fetus across the placenta or from a mother to an infant through breast milk Antigen presentation 0 Macrophage engulfs and digests the microbe o The antigen is bound to an MHC molecule 0 MHC molecule transports antigen to the cell surface 0 The macrophage secretes interleukin 1 which enhances B cell differentiation and proliferation Helper T cells 0 DO NOT SECRETE ANTIBODIES OR SIRECTLY ATTACK CELLS o Secrete interleukin 1 o Enhance the development of antigen stimulated B cells 0 Enhance cytosolic T cell activity 0 Activate macrophages and modulate the activity of other immune cells HIVAIDS Human Immunode ciency Virus Acquired Immune De ciency Syndrome o Selectively invades helper T cells and can infect macrophages as well thus decreases the immune system Cytotoxic T cells 0 Primarily target viruses 0 Recognize and bind to the target antigen with selfantigen o Kills the target by either releasing chemicals or signaling them to commit suicide 0 Perforin a chemical released by the cytotoxic T cell and by NK cells that forms channellike pores in the cell membrane 0 Cytokines any chemical that is secreted by leukocytes that is NOT an anUbody Tolerance prevention of attack on a person s own tissues 0 Clonal deletion elimination of clones that recognize ones own tissues by apoptosis cell death of immature cells 0 Clonal anergy 2 signals required for lymphocyte activation the antigen and B7 found on the surface of the antigen presenting cell exposure to a single selfantigen renders the T cell inactive 0 Receptor editing B cell is capable of changing the antigen that is recognized Thus when a B cell encounters selfantigen it often changes the antigen receptor 0 Antigen Sequestering self molecules that are never seen by the immune system not directly in contact with extracellular uid 0 Immune privilege certain tissues such as the eyes and testes possess a molecule that triggers cell death when approached by activated lymphocytes Autoimmune Disease 0 Failure of the immune system to recognize and tolerate selfantigens associated with certain tissues 0 Examples multiple sclerosis rheumatoid arthritis type 1 diabetes mellitus PANDAS pediatric autoimmune disorders associated with streptococci Neurological Autoimmune Disorders O O PANDAS Tic disorder OCD and Tourette Syndrome D817 antibody streptococci M6 antibody found in large percentage of patients with Tourette Syndrome Serum from Tourette Syndrome patients causes spontaneous verbalization of rats when injected into rat brain M6 antibody binds myosin responsible for mitral valve and heart damage associated with rheumatic fever MHC molecules major histocompatibility complex 0 O O O Escorts antigens to the cell surface for presentation Can recognize 3 to 6 antigens By itself signals the immune system to leave the cell alone With antigen signals the T cell speci c for the antigen to bind with the infected cell Class MHC molecule Benign vs Malignant O O Benign tumors are NOT cancerous They grow slowly They do NOT leave the original location Malignant Tumors Cancerous Grows at variable rates but generally faster than a benign tumor Can spread outside of its original location metastasize Immediate hypersensitivity allergic responses involving B cells 0 O 0 Examples pollen bee venom penicillin nut allergies mold dust cat saliva dog dander mites Result in the synthesis of lgE antibodies Release of antibodies by memory cells upon reeXposure leads to a more powerful response Delayed hypersensitivity take a day or so to occur involve T cells 0 Examples poison ivy poison oak poison sumac emu Collins 20m hair shaft multiple layers of dead epithelial cells efllectqr T eell willilh quot urusjhmllrecepmrsl 39 I won its
