When a B or T cell is primed by an interaction with its particular antigen the cell does what?
grows, divides, and differentiates further
It is not fixed for any type of cell in particular that it has such number of cell recepters this number highly varies between different types of cells. I know that the antigen cell receptor is called as an epitope which decides the interaction between a particular antibody. The blood plasma are the highest proportion in blood apart from RBC.
An antibody is a glycoprotein that is produced by plasma cells. It consists of heavy chains and light chains. An antigen is a molecule that interacts with an antibody (or T-Cell). When the antigen interaction induces an immune response it is known as an immunogen.
It first exhibits its particular surface antibody before it ever encounters an antigen.
Yes. The first signal that a T cell receives from an antigen presenting cell (dendritic cell) is MHC presenting an antigen (foreign peptide). This gives the T cell specificity to this antigen.
B and T cells are both lymphocytes and appear the same at maturity. Their job is to fight infection. Each cell is particular to a specific antigen. This means that the cell will proliferate when successfully fighting its specific antigen.
CD4 is a surface receptor expressed by helper T lymphocytes, known as CD4+ T cells. Its purpose is to stablize the interaction between the T cell receptor (on the T cell) and an antigen-bearing MHC Class II molecule (on an antigen presenting cell). Under the right circumstances, this interaction activates CD4+ T cells that recognize an invading pathogen. Activated CD4+ T cells do many things, and are required for a robust adaptive immune response.
there are different types of b cell and t cell. both are lymphocytes, a subclass of white blood cell. the t cells are mainly used in identifying antigens and releasing chemicals which attact macrophages (big immune cells which 'eat' antigens), to destroy the antigen. b cells are used in the production of antibodies. when they encounter a new antigen, plasma cells and memory cells are formed from the division of a b cell. the memory… Read More
Antibodies are secreted by a special group of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Each type of cell (including bacteria) has a unique protein on its cell membrane - an antigen. If a lymphocyte does not recognise a particular antigen, it will assume that the cell (or bacterium) is foreign and hostile. This is what antibodies respond to - the stimulus as the result of an unfamiliar cell. The antibodies attach to the antigens and kill… Read More

B cells are used in the production of antibodies. when they encounter a new antigen, plasma cells and memory cells are formed from the devision of a B cell. the memory… Read More
Macrophages ( in the lymph nodes ) act like phagocytes to engulf and digest the pathogen. But they do not fully digest it. They separate out the antigens and incorporate them into a cell surface molecule. This is exposed on the surface of the macrophage, which becomes known as an antigen-presenting cell. Its function is to find the lymphocytes that can neutralise that particular antigen.
Antigen Presenting Cell (APC)
1. The T cell sees the antigen/pathogen 2. The T cell wakes the B cell 3. The 'killer T cells' come and destroy the antigen/pathogen 4. The B cell turns into a memory (B) cell and remembers the antigen/pathogen and how to stop it.
Usually a virus that hides inside a host cell where it is undetectable (the majority of the time) its antigens wouldn't always be presented on the surface of the cell for macrophages to engulf =]
The antigen from the pathogen is displayed on the outside of the phagocyte
Which is the most important factor governing a cell's particular type of interaction withother cells?
the location of the cell within an organism
Well firstly an antigen presenting cell like dendritic cell or macrophage is needed. Secondly you also need a T cell that is complementary to the B cell. B cell will only become plasma cell when it receives the full signal 1. Stimuli: CD4 from T cell interacting with BcR/antigen complex on B cell 2. Co-stimuli: CD40L (CD154) on T cell interacting with CD40 on B cell This interaction allows T cell to secrete IL4, this… Read More
What occurs if a T cell binds to an antigen and the T cell does not receive a co-stimulatory signal?
The T cell enters a state of anergy. In this case, the T cell becomes tolerant to that antigen and is unable to divide or to secrete cytokines. This state of unresponsiveness to antigen is called anergy.
The surface immunoglotulin that serves as the B-Cell antigen receptor (BCR) has two roles in B-cell activation. First, like the antigen receptor on T cells, it transmits signals directly to the cell's interior when it binds antigen. Second, the B-Cell antigen receptor delivers the antigen to intracellular sites where it is degraded and returned to the B-cell surface as peptides bound to MHC class II molecules.
Any foreign particle interact with Antibody or T cell is antigen. Interaction is non-covalent and highly specific. Antigen that evoke immune response is called Immunogen. An immunogen usually has a fairly high molecular weight (usually greater than 10,000), thus, a variety of macromolecules such as proteins,lipoproteins, polysaccharides, some nucleic acids, and certain of the teichoic acids, can act as immunogens.
when a antigen enters the body then the body would send antibodies to get rid of them. The antibody doesn't get rid of the antigen they tag it by binding to it so that a cell..a white blood cell can come and destroy by phagi.
a t-cell recognizes the antigen on the outside of a pathogen. Each pathogen has a different antigen. That's how it knows what pathogen it is.
Naive T cells are activated by antigen presenting cells (dendritic cells). This begins when an antigen (eg. bacterial protein) is taken up/detected by a dendritic cell. In order for the T cell to become activated, it requires 3 different signals: 1. MHC (Major Histocompatibilty Complex) presenting foreign antigen to a T cell receptor -> creates specificity so that the T cell relates to this antigen 2. B7 (on dendritic cell) binds to CD28 (on T… Read More
The antigen grows a memory cell instead of the Plasma cell and takes over the whole body and kills all of the antibodies.
The Burnet theory about antigen antibody reaction is a basic concept about how we make antibodies specific to a foreign substance which has the ability to induce an immune response (antigen). Each B cell displas one unique type of B cell receptor on their surface (which is basically a membrane bound antibody). Therefore many B cells, each expressing its own type of B cell receptor are needed to cover the inexhaustable number of antigens that… Read More
When a B cell detects an antigen, it will engulf it and then display it on its cell surface with an MHC molcule. This antigen/MHC combination is then detected by a T cell - which will send signalling molcules to B cells to multiply and mature into plasma cells (which create antibodies against the antigen) and memory B cells (which 'remember' the antigen for next time). They become plasma cells
antigen processing and presentation
T cells receive 3 signals during activation: 1. Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) presenting an antigen (foreign peptide) to the T cell receptor 2. The co-stimulatory signal (B7 on the dendritic cell binding to CD28 on the T cell) The first signal ensures that the T cell is specific for the antigen it has been presented. The T cell cannot be activated without also recieveing the second signal. This is how the T cell checks that… Read More
Yes the antigen binding sites on the Cell determine the antigen which it bonds to and differentiates using histocompatabilty markers.
A non-self antigen is a 'Foreign' cell or chemical which is not naturally found inside the body.
b-cell- humeral- antibody based response to antigen t-cell - cell mediated response to antigen both are components of the adaptive immune system
Dendritic cells,macrophages, B cells
There are two types of immunity Humoral & Cell-mediated ; in humoral immunity plasma cells produces specific antibodies against a particular antigen that may invade the boby.
What happence when an antigen on a red blood cell comes in contact with the antibody designed to seek it out?
The antibody is killed off, and the antigen spreads
Cell to Cell Intercommunications.
The immune cell that allows for subsequent recognition of an antigen resulting in a secondary response is called an?
The immune cell that allows for subsequent recognition of an antigen resulting in a secondary response is called a memory cell. Memory cells are small, long-lived lymphocytes.
The antigen is the foreign "invader" in the body. The antibody is a tiny "Y" shaped protein that is chemically attracted to a specific antigen; binding to it and thereby marking it for destruction by a white blood cell.
it makes an antibody
Interaction between a cell and another cell. It's done usually by lipoproteins embedded in the plasma membrane. It really depends on the type of cell and the situation though.
Type A blood means that on the outer cell membrane there is an antigen that identifies the cell as being "Type A". If you have "positive" blood, this means you have tested positive for the Rh factor, and there is an antigen identifying the Rh factor on the outer cell membrane. If you are Rh negative, there is no antigen on the outer membrane. The ABO and Rh blood types are just 2 of the… Read More
NO! I am currently taking an online health class and the answer was true or false to the question above, and i googled the internet and it said yes so i chose true and got the answer wrong, so no antigen is not a self cell
The T cell enters a state of anergy
they differentiate the body's own cell to enemy
It is the B-cells.
natural killer cells.
What is the most important factor in governing a cell's particular type of interaction with other cells?
This would be the nucleus. It helps to decide how the cell is going to interact with others at any given time.
There is no such thing as "antigen O" there is only Antigen A, Antigen B and Antigen D. Antigen A and/or B are part of the surface of the red blood cell (RBC) and the Antibody is opposite of whatever it may be. If the antibody and the antigen are of the same type they will agglutinate and clump which is bad. For example if you have A antigen on your RBCs then you will… Read More
These tests are based primarily on antigen-antibody reactions--an antigen being a protein foreign to the body, and an antibody another type of protein manufactured by lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) to neutralize the antigen.
1. An antigen presenting cell presents antigen on Class II MHC to a Helper T cell activating it 2. At the same time a B cell that has taken up and degraded the same pathogen displays antigen on its class II 3. The activated helper T cell binds to the B cell releasing cytokines and activating it 4. The activated B cell proliferates and differentiates into: 1) memory B cells 2) antibody-secreting plasma cells that… Read More
Immunity independent of antibody but dependent on the recognition of antigen by T cells and their subsequent destruction of cells bearing the antigen or on the secretion by T cells of lymphokines that enhance the ability of phagocytes to eliminate the antigen.
