results from antibodies that pass from mother to fetus
cytotoxic t cells
directly responsible for cellular immunity -can specifically identitify and directly kill disease cells and virus infected cells
responsible for humoral immunity
exposing a rabbit to a viral antigen so it makes antibodies which we purify and inject into a human with the same viral disease
antigen's are digested, phagocytic APC's enguilf pathogens, antigen fragments appear on the apc's surface
helper t cells
secretes lymphokines that regulate immunity
presenting cells in immunity activate t cells, display antigen fragments, and process antigens
functions of respiratory system
exchange gases, protect against enviormental hazards, and ventilate air spaces
what traps particulate matter in inhaled air?
lower respiratory system
bronchi, aveoli, trachea, and larynx
create turbulence in air to trap particulate matter

blood processing, stores iron, and lymphocytes NOT VITAL
posterior to sternum, produced hormones that stimulate lymphocyte maturation
any substance that stimulates an immune response
where are parts of the antigens displayed?
do not discriminate between antigens. response is always the same.
lymphocyte formation in fetal bone marrow
one population goes to the thymus than to the peripheral tissues and the other remains in the bone marrow where is develops an immunological competence than migrates to the peripheral tissues
2 arms of the immune system
cell mediate immunity and antibody mediated immuniy
cell mediated immunity
activates t cells and phagocytes and direcly physically and chemically attack the antigen
antibody mediated immunity
(humoral immunity) b cells attack by cirulating the antibodies
3 types of t cells
killer ts, helper ts, supressor t cells
t cells can only recognize antigens when...
they are bound to an apc's plasma membrane
t cell activation
-pathogen is phagocytized by apc -lysosome fuses with vesicle containing pathogen and digests it -antigen fragments are displayed by class 2 MHC proteins on plasma membrane -fragments are bound to class 2 MHC proteins and the endoplasmic reticulum produced class 2 mhc proteins
what do helper t's do?
release cytokines (chemicals) they grow and divide, activate killer t's, and activate b cells
killer t's recognize target antigens on...

decrease in ph increase in co2 and increase in temp
benefits of shifted curve?
less percent saturation at any given po2 more o2 is unloaded from hb to tissues
co2-- carbonic acid
co2 from body cells in peripheral tissues diffuse through the capillary wall and into the rbc where water is added to it and catabolized by carbonic anhydrase that turns ino carbonic acid which dissociated into h+ and bicarbonate (hco3) the bicarbonate leanes the cell and is replaced by a chloride the h+ binds to a hb and acts as a buffer to preven ph change this preserves electroneutrality
bicarbonate enters the rbc and chloride exits, bicarbonate is added to h+ which had resuloted from H+ and hb. those two come together to form h2co3, from this co2 leaves the cell crosses the capillary wall and goes into the aveoli of the lungs
