Focus Questions : Immunity 1.  What are the most common routes of entry and invasion of pathogenic organisms?  What simple  protection mechanisms do these routes of entry have in common?  What types of immune defense meet  organisms that make it past the initial protection mechanisms? How are signaling and coordination  achieved across the various immune components? 2. Which components (levels) of the immune system have the ability to specifically identify objects and  cells as being foreign or native?  How?  What are specific examples of how it happens? 3.

How do they fight foreign pathogens? 6. How is the mechanism of B cell recognition of foreign antigens different from that of T cells? What are immunoglobulins and how do they relate to B cells? 7. How is the great diversity of T cell receptors (TCRs) and immunoglobulin achieved? David H. Bos (2010). This material can be used for non-profit educational purposes, if properly attributed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
