impart antigen specificity Antibody Structure Antibody structure 5 Classes of Immunoglobulins Overview of Interactions Antigen-Receptor Diversity Gene sequences get shuffled, extensively and randomly, before they are expressed Each B cell or T cell bears only one type of antigen receptor Antigen Receptor Diversity Gene rearrangements Section 39.6: Weblinks and InfoTrac See the latest Weblinks and InfoTrac articles for this chapter online Antibody-Mediated Response Carried out by B cells Targets are intracellular pathogens and toxins Antibodies bind to target and mark it for destruction by phagocytes and complement Clonal Selection Clonal Selection Clonal selection of a B cell Immunological Memory Memory cells specific for an antigen are quickly activated to divide upon subsequent exposure to that antigen Immune Memory Immune Memory Antibody-Mediated Response Antibody-Mediated Response Antibody-mediated response Section 39.7: Weblinks and InfoTrac See the latest Weblinks and InfoTrac articles for this chapter online Cell-Mediated Response Cell-Mediated Response Cell-mediated response Antibody-Mediated Response Cell-mediated response Organ Rejection Cytotoxic T cells can contribute to rejection They recognize a portion of the donor cell’s MHC complex as self, view a portion as foreign Treat the combination as an antigen-MHC complex and attack donor cells Section 39.8: Weblinks and InfoTrac See the latest Weblinks and InfoTrac articles for this chapter online Videos: CNN Ask your Thomson Sales Representative for these volumes on CD or VHS A&P, 2003, Vol. 7, Custom Cancer Vaccine (3:10) Monoclonal Antibodies Manufacture antibodies against tumor-specific antigens First created by fusing antigen-producing B cells from mice with cells from B cell tumors Now made in genetically engineered cells Lymphokine-Activated Killers Lymphocytes are extracted from tumors Extracted cells are exposed to a lymphokine, an interleukin Large population of tumor-infiltrating, activated lymphocytes is then reinjected into patient Section 39.9: Weblinks and InfoTrac See the latest Weblinks and InfoTrac articles for this chapter online Videos: CNN Ask your Thomson Sales Representative for these volumes on CD or VHS A&P, 2004, Vol. 8, Whooping Cough Immunization (1:52) A&P, 2004, Vol. 8, Peanut Allergies (1:33) A&P, 2004, Vol. 8, Juvenile Arthritis (2:02) Immunization Process that promotes immunity Active immunization Antigen-containing material is injected Confers long-lasting immunity Passive Purified antibody is injected Protection is short lived Allergies Immune reaction to a harmless substance Genetic predisposition IgE responds to antigen by binding to mast cells and basophils These cells secrete the substances that cause symptoms Anaphylactic Shock A life-threatening allergic reaction Caused by the release of histamine by many mast cells and basophils Airways constrict and blood pressure drops as capillary permeability soars Autoimmune Disorders Immune system makes antibodies against self antigens Grave’s disease Myasthenia gravis Rheumatoid arthritis SCIDs Severe combined immunodeficiency Body’s ability to make lymphocytes is impaired or nonexistent High vulnerability to infection ADA deficiency is a heritable SCID Has been successfully treated using gene therapy Gene Therapy Section 39.10: Weblinks and InfoTrac See the latest Weblinks and InfoTrac articles for this chapter online Videos: CNN Ask your Thomson Sales Representative for these volumes on CD or VHS A&P, 2002, Vol. 6, AIDS Update (2:10) AIDS Combination of disorders that follows infection with HIV Includes Yeast (Candida) infections Pneumocystis pneumonia Karposi’s sarcoma Global Cases of AIDS/HIV HIV Life Cycle HIV Life Cycle HIV replication cycle T Cell Decline Release of new viral particles kills the host T cell The body is constantly making new T cells, but cannot outpace the rate of destruction As infection proceeds, T cell numbers inevitably decline Effect of T Cell Decline CD4 helper T cells play a vital role in immune function They are required for both cell-mediated and antibody-mediated immunity Infected individual becomes vulnerable to other infections, which eventually result in death Transmission of HIV HIV does not live long outside human body Most often spread by exchange of bodily fluids with an infected person In the U.S., anal intercourse and needle sharing are main modes of transmission Transmission of HIV Less commonly transmitted by vaginal intercourse and oral sex Can travel from mothers to offspring during pregnancy, birth, or breast-feeding Not known to be transmitted by food, air, water, casual contact, or insect bites Treatment No cure Once HIV genes are incorporated, no way to get them out AZT and other drugs slow the course of the disease and increase life span Researchers continue to develop drugs and to work toward an AIDS vaccine ...
