how does the immune system recognize self from non-‐self?
glycoprotein (ID tags) on
Lack of response
immune suppression; ex/ AIDS
functioning immune system, but recognizing the wrong cells)= autoimmune diseases; ex/ multiple sclerosis
sensitive to any sort of invaders; ex/ allergies and asthma
acquired immunity aka specific immune response; targets specific invaders
eat bacteria; short lifespan(lives for few days)
degranulate(secretes granules) to induce response
destroy large invaders such as worms
releases granules, which contains chemicals that activate multiple pathways, into extracellular fluid
cells that eat invaders by engulfing their target
are in blood and are inactive until signaled by chemicals released during inflammation
MAC (membrane attack complex)
is the final product after the activation and release of 30+ plasma protein
