engulfs and kills pathogens.
engulfs and destroys pathogens.
natural killer cell
punctures infected cells.
activates cytotoxic T cells.
punctures labeled infected cells.
labels invaders for destruction by macrophages.
stores information about a pathogen.
a physical response to an antigen, which can be a common substance that produces little/no response in the general population.
a substance that inhibits the growth rate of or kills microrganisms.
a substance that stimulates an immune response.
medicines that cure/control virus infections.
a rod-shaped bacterium.
a protein sheath that surrounds the nucleic acid core in a virus.
a sphere shaped bacterium.
in algae and fungi, an exchange of genetic material that occurs between 2 temporary joined cells; in prokaryotes, the process by which 2 organisms bind together and 1 cell transfers DNA to the other cell through a structure called a sex pilus.
a thick-walled protective spore that forms inside a bacterial cell and resists harsh conditions.
a potent, extracellular toxin secreted by some gram positive bacteria.
when the body temperature gets too hot(above 96 degrees F.)
a bacterial capsule that is made of a fuzzy coat of sticky sugars.
a chemical that stimulates the autonomous nervous system, secretion of gastric juices, and dilation of capillaries.
a protein that is produced by cells infected by a virus and that can protect uninfected cells from reproduction of the virus.
the disintegration of a cell by disruption of the plasma membrane.
a method of a viral replication that results in the destruction of the host cell and the release of many new virus particles.
an immune system cell that engulfs pathogens and other materials.
an immune system B/T cell that does not respond the 1st time that it meets with the antigen or an invading cell, but that recognizes and attacks the antigen or invading cell during subsequent infections.
an organism that produces methane gas.
an antibiotic drug obtained from molds and used to treat/prevent various infections caused by gram-positive bacteria.
an organism that derives it's energy for food synthesis from light and is capable of using carbon dioxide as it's principle source of carbon.
an infectious particle that consists only of a protein and that does not contain DNA or RNA.
a type of drug that blocks the synthesis of a new viral capsid and that is used to treat diseases such as AIDS.
an enzyme that catalyzes the formation of DNA through an RNA template.
a spiral shaped bacterium.
suppressor T cells
a specialized sub-population of T-cells that acts to suppress activation of the immune system and therefore maintain immune system homeostasis and self tolerance.
marked by modern temperatures, weather, or climate.
a yellow crystaline compound, synthesized an derived from several species of the genus Streptomyces and used as an antibiotic in bacterial infections.
an infectious agent that is made up of a short, circular single strand of RNA that doesn't have a capsid.
describes a micro-organism that causes disease and that is highly infectious.
a virus that cannot replicate in the host.
a virus that is generically altered so that it wont cause disease.
