Chapter 16 -- Part 3: Immunity
The ability of the organisms to be removed by phagocytosis is what eosinophils do.
There are macrophages in the blood.
Their main function is to dispose of worn out blood cells.
The dendrites of nerve cells are what they are called because they have long extensions that attach to the outer surface of the parasites.
Their number dritic cells are abundant in the skin and increase in number during certain infections.
The ability of NK cells to not actively phagocytic until they leave circulating blood is what allows them to kill a wide variety of body cells and tumor cells.
The count of Thoracic Duct White Blood Cells is shown in parentheses.
The blood and lymphatic systems are different.
The immune responses are indicated by the arrows.
The sites of the activation of the lymph flow are the Lymph nodes.
T cells and B cells destroy microbes.
The binding of NK cells to a target capillaries allows the release of vesi, but not out.
Toxic substances from NK cells can be found within the lymphatic capillaries.
The fluid is called lymph.
Depending on the severity of the infection, the leukocyte count can double, triple, or quadruple.
There are also cells from the immune system.
phagocytosis is the method of nutri Tissue cells tion.
Dead body cells and denatured proteins are some of the debris that phagocytosis is involved in.
In the Lymphatic vessel chapter, phagocytosis is discussed as a means by which cells in the Toward lymph node human body counter infections as part of the second line of defense.
There are different types of white blood cells.
Monocytes enlarge and develop into macrophages during this migration.
The cells leave the blood and migrate into tissues.
Like veins, these vessels have one-way development.
There is a shift in the type of infections that occur.
White blood cell aggregations are common in the bloodstream.
There are different parts of the body with phoid tissues.
As the macrophages watch the blood for infections, they are more likely to pick up toxins.
Adherence occurs easily in some instances.
The phagosome has a membrane that pumps H+) into it.
The hydrolytic enzymes are activated.
After the initial phase of infections, the phagosome pinches off from the plasma membrane.
The phagolysosome's contents are reflected in a differen in the phagolysosome.
The toxic oxygen products in kill phagocytes can be made use of by the chemotactic chemicals.
For example, the damaged tissue cells can be converted into highly toxic hypochlorous acid by using the cytokine released by the white peroxidase.
The acid has a system of defense proteins.
The contents of the phagolysosome ganism have been absorbed by the enzymes.
The binding of PAMPs to TLRs doesn't discharge its waste outside the cell.
Adherence, ingestion, and digestion are phases of phagocytosis.
The second line of immune defense is called phagocytosis.
T and B cells can be stimulated by phagocytes.
TLRs are a focus of immunological research.
Somebacteria have structures that prevent them from forming a lysosome.
The fusion of a phagosome with a lated microorganisms can only be prevented by heavily encapsu parasites.
The microorganism is trapped against a rough surface by the phagocyte, which in turn causes the microbes to multiply within it, filling it.
Most of the time, the phagocyte dies and the microbes are the cause.
Other microbes may be eaten but not killed.
Streptolysin released by that are part of the biofilms are more resistant to the immune system.
There are virulence factors hiding from host Defenses.
Microbes release more attack complexes that lyse the plasma that evades it, resulting in release of microbes from the phagocyte and infections of neighboring cells.
