(CFU = colony–forming unit.) 1Monocytes that have moved into tissues are called macrophages.2Basophils that have moved into tissues are called mast cells. Antibodies Antibodies Alternative names – Immunoglobulins – Gamma globulins Family of structurally related glycoproteins Mediate humoral immunity Recognize and bind with specific antigens Produced by B lymphocytes Five classes of antibodies Five – IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM Antigens Antigens Molecules that induce specific immune Molecules responses responses May trigger production of antibodies or May cytotoxic T cells, or both cytotoxic Antibodies recognize and bind selected Antibodies small portions of the antigen small More than one antibody can bind to the More antigen antigen Childhood Immunizations Immunizations Immunizations Immunizations Purpose is to protect...
