Chapter Section: 27.99) A woman is being treated for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). She has an increased risk of opportunistic infections.Based on what you know about SLE and the treatment for it, propose why she has an increased risk of opportunistic infections.Chapter Section: 27.910) You are bitten by a venomous snake at a nature center. You are rushed to the emergency room and given an antiserum. Thesnake handler says that he was bitten previously, but did not need treatment because he said he was exposed to venom somany times that he is immune. What is antiserum and will you have long-lasting immunity to snake venom after this? If thesnake handler has truly developed some level of immunity, then how has that happened?Chapter Section: 27.311) If you were given a new necklace and developed reddening, swelling, and itching of your skin around your neck 24 hoursafter putting on the necklace, what reason would you give to this phenomenon? What immune cells are involved?Chapter Section: 27.912) What role does the C domain play in cell surface proteins that interact directly with antigens?Chapter Section: 27.7
13) A patient is waiting for a kidney transplant. In order for the transplant to be successful, the donated kidney (the graft)mustʺmatchʺwith the recipient. What has toʺmatchʺbetween the donor and the recipient? Why is matching tissue moredifficult than matching blood types?Chapter Section: 27.614) Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins, antibodies, and T cell receptors are all highly variable so that they caninteract with a large number of different antigens. How is variability generated for each of these important antigen-bindingproteins?Chapter Section: 27.415) Design five amino acid peptides that could be bound by a single hypothetical class I MHC protein. The MHC proteins bindspeptides that are 10 amino acids long and have two anchor residues, tyrosine and isoleucine, at positions 2 and 5.Chapter Section: 27.616) Why is the secondary immune response stronger in regard to antibodies?Chapter Section: 27.417) Given that T cell receptors (TCRs) are randomly generated during the maturation process, how are new T cells selectedthat can recognize self-antigens and other immune cells appropriately?Brock Biology of Microorganisms, 15e(Madigan et al.)Chapter 28 Clinical Microbiology and Immunology28.1 Multiple Choice Questions1) Laboratories that work with extremely low risk pathogens are classified asA) BSL-1.B) BSL-2.C) BSL-3.D) BSL-4.Chapter Section: 28.12) Which of the following must be accomplished FIRST in order to conduct RT-PCR?A) Complementary DNA must be synthesized from double-stranded DNA.B) Complementary DNA must be synthesized from RNA.C) Complementary DNA must be synthesized from proteins.D) Complementary DNA must be synthesized from single-stranded DNA.
