Terminology Antigen = immunogen Epitope = determinant Immunodominant epitope Process Immunization Inject antigen (+ adjuvant): IV; IP; IM multiple times Antigen is processed and presented by macrophages and antigen- presenting cells (APCs) Presented to surface receptors on B-cells (Karp, p. 697 – 700) Antigen recognition by B-cells; receptor mediated activation Clonal expansion of B-cells B memory cells Plasma (Ig) secreting cells Synthesis and secretion of immunoglobulins (Ig) = antibody Multiple forms: IgG; IgM Multivalent Collect and characterize antibody Whole blood Serum (cells and clotting factors removed) Fractionate out IgG from other proteins (albumin)
