Lecture 1/26/12 Chapter 43 Immunity Big Questions / Learning Objectives 1. Describe three basic function of the lymphatic system. 2. Give examples of physical and chemical barrier defenses 3. Compare and contrast recognition by receptors in innate and adaptive immunity. 4. Describe how histamines and antimicrobial peptides function in innate immunity. 5. Explain how macrophage are important for both innate and adaptive immunity. 6. Diagram the recognition event involving an MHC molecule, a peptide epitope, and a cell surface receptor of a T cell. 7. Explain how a limited number of genes gives rise to B or T cells representing 100 million different receptors. 8. Describe the process that eliminates self-reactive B or T cells and the consequences of a failure in this process. 9. Summarize clonal selection, describing the amplification of selected cells

Explain why the secondary immune response the response to an antigen previously encountered is both more rapid and stronger than the primary immune response. 11. Describe the distinct consequences of antigen presentation by class I and class II MHC molecules.
