During a fever, liver and spleen sequester Iron and Zinc, which are needed by bacteria to reproduce. * Increased cellular metabolic rate promotes healing. * Increased temperature further activates macrophages. But..too much .... Too high of a temperature can denature enzymes (>104∞F). II. The Adaptive (specific) Immunity (Ch 33 - Fig 33-3 ) -specificity- involves specific B and T lymphocytes -versatility (can attack most anything) -memory -tolerance (disguishes self from non-self) -B cells (Humoral) and T cells (Cell-Mediated)

Box 33-1 Terms of the chapter.. .. Antigen = large, complex molecule not normally present in the body. Referred to as NON-SELF. Specific parts of an antigen, known as antigenic determinants, are the identifiers of the antigen and are the parts of the antigen that stimulate the immune system. A pathogen is a harmful type of antigen. MHC markers —self antigens. Major Histocompatibility Complex proteins on the surface of body cells. The markers are genetically determined and identify cells to the immune system as SELF cells. If there is a problem with the MHC marker, the cell will be killed. Naïve - inactive B or T cells. Clone - family of cells descended from one cell MHC I = found on all body cells except RBC’s. MHC II = found on surface of mature B cells, some T-cells and antigen-presenting cells (APC's- macrophages and neutrophils (phagocytes). Antigen presenting cells phagocytize invaders and save a piece of antigen for lymphocytes. A. T-cells and Cell-Mediated Immunity . (Fig 33-17) 1. Helper T-cells only recognize cells with type II MHC proteins (WBC’s); stimulate proliferation of other Tcells and B-cells already bound to antigen. 2. Cytotoxic T-cells (killer cells).: only recognize cells with MHC I proteins; kill virus infected or other foreign agent infected cell (fig 33-16).Kill with a lethal hit by releasing chemicals into target cell that causes cell lysis . Also go through clonal selection. 3. Suppressor T-cells: Release of lymphokinins that suppress the activity of both T and B cells.

    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.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
