MCRB 410 Chapter 8 Notes
-the production of new lymphocytes (lymphopoiesis) takes place in
central lymphoid tissues: bone marrow for B cells and thymus for T cells
lymphoid precursors originate in bone marrow; B cell precursors
MCRB 410 Chapter 7 Notes
-intracellular signaling pathway = a series of proteins that interact
with one another to convey information received from the extracellular
environment across the plasma membrane in order to generate intracellular
-each receptor-chain variant cant be encoded in full in genome b/c
would require more genes for antigen receptors than there are genes in
entire genome; instead V regions encoded in gene segments that are
assembled by somatic DNA recombination
-classical pathway initiated when complement component C1
(comprised of recognition protein C1q and proteases C1r and C1s) recognizes
microbial surface directly or bind to antibodies bound to pathogen
-alternative pathway initiated by spontaneo

Chapter 3: The Innate Immune System
1. Cells of the innate immune system express a number of cytokines and chemokines
that recruit cells of adaptive immunity to the site of the infection. A key cellular
bridge between innate and adaptive immunity is the d
