2 The Immune System The immune system is a body-wide network of molecules, cells and organs that has evolved to defend the body against attacks by "foreign" invaders. The targets of the immune defenses are infectious organisms including: Bacteria, Fungi, Parasites, and Viruses
3 Markers of Self At the heart of the immune response is the ability to distinguish between self and nonself. Every body cell carries distinctive molecules that distinguish it as "self." Normally the body's defenses do not attack tissues that carry a self marker; rather, immune cells coexist peacefully with other body cells in a state known as self-tolerance.
4 Markers of Non-Self Most foreign molecules carry distinctive markers. The immune system is able to recognize many millions of distinctive non-self molecules, and to respond in different ways. An antigen: a substance capable of triggering an immune response is called an antigen (e.g., bacterium, virus, cells from another individual)
5 A Huge Network Interacting: Organs Thymus, Spleen, Lymph node, Bone marrow, Cells Macrophages, Neutrophils, Dendritic cells, B cells, T cells,.. Molecules Complement system, Cytokines, (Weakly?) Coupling with the nervous system
6 Organs of the Immune System The organs of the immune system are stationed throughout the body. They are known as lymphoid organs because they are concerned with the growth, development, and deployment of lymphocytes white blood cells that are key operatives of the immune system.
7 Lymphatic System The organs of the immune system are connected with one another and with other organs of the body by a network of lymphatic vessels similar to blood vessels. Immune cells and foreign particles are conveyed through the lymphatics in lymph, a clear fluid that bathes the body's tissues.
8 Lymph Node Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped structures that are laced throughout the body along the lymphatic routes. Lymph nodes contain specialized compartments where immune cells congregate, and where they can encounter antigens.
9 Cells of the Immune System Cells of the immune system arise in the bone marrow from stem cells. Two groups of cells are the myleoids and lymphoids. Myeloid cells include monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils. The two major classes of lymphocytes are B cells and T cells.
11 B Cells B cells work chiefly by secreting soluble substances known as antibodies. Each B cell is programmed to make one specific antibody. When a B cell encounters its triggering antigen (along with various accessory cells), it gives rise to many large plasma cells. Each plasma cell is essentially a factory for producing that one specific antibody.
12 Antibody Each antibody is made up of two identical heavy chains and two identical light chains. The tips of the Y: recognition sites. The stem of the Y: link to other participants in the immune defenses. Many tips, and only a few stems. Antibodies belong to a family of large protein molecules known as immunoglobulins
13 IgG, IgD, and IgE There are nine chemically distinct classes of human immunoglobulins, IgG and two kinds of IgA, plus IgM, IgE, and IgD. IgG: able to enter tissue spaces; IgD mostly the membrane of B cells, (regulates the cell's activation). IgE is responsible for the symptoms of allergy
14 IgA and IgM IgA a doublet, exists in tears, saliva, and the secretions of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. guard the entrances to the body. IgM usually in star-shaped clusters. It tends to remain in the bloodstream.
15 T Cells T cells are of three main classes (i) regulate the complex workings of the immune system. (ii) directly contact infected cells and destroy them. (iii) turn off or suppress immune cells.
16 Cytokines A diverse and potent chemical messengers secreted by the cells of the immune Cytokines encourage cell growth, promote cell activation, direct cellular traffic, and destroy target cells including cancer cells.
17 Natural Killer Cells NK cells do not have a specific recognition. Both Killer T cells and NK cells types contain granules filled with potent chemicals, and kill on contact. The killer binds to its target, aims its weapons, and delivers a burst of lethal chemicals.
18 Phagocytes and Granulocytes Phagocytes: large white cells that can engulf and digest foreign invaders. Monocytes: circulate in the blood, Macrophages: in tissues throughout the body, Neutrophils: circulate in the blood, but move into tissues when needed.
19 Phagocytes in the Body Specialized phagocytes are found in organs throughout the body.
20 The Complement System The complement system: a series of proteins that work to "complement" the work of antibodies in destroying bacteria. Complement proteins circulate in the blood in an inactive form.
21 Antigen Receptors B cells and T have receptors for recognizing and responding to specific targets. The B cell's antigen-specific receptor = antibody it can manufacture; it recognizes antigen in its natural state. A T cell can recognize an antigen only after the antigen is processed and presented to it by a so-called antigen-presenting cell, in combination with a special type of cell marker (MHC). CD4 T cell's receptor MHC II, found on immune system cells (B-cells, Macrophages, D-Cells) CD8 T cell's receptor MHC I; found on virtually all body cells.
22 B Cells Activation The B cell + specific antigen Ł B cell engulf and process antigen. Antigen fragment (peptide) + special marker (MHC II) B cell surface. T recognizing peptide+mhc T cell releases cytokines transforming the B cell into an antibodysecreting cell (plasma cell).
23 Helper T Cell activation APC (Antigen presenting cell, (macrophage, B cell, D cell) + specific CD4 T cell APC releases cytokines T cell matures T cell releases cytokines
24 Cytotoxic T cell activation
25 When The Immune System Fails Allergy Autoimmune diseases Cancer
26 Allergy First exposure to an allergen B cells make large amounts of IgE antibodies. These IgE molecules attach to mast cells, (in lungs, skin, tongue, and linings of the nose and gastrointestinal tract) Next exposure to allergen the IgEprimed mast cell releases chemicals causing wheezing, sneezing, and other symptoms of allergy.
27 Immune Complex Disease Immune complexes: clusters of interlocking antigens and antibodies. Normally they are rapidly removed from the bloodstream. If they continue to circulate, can be trapped and damage the tissues of the kidneys, as seen here, or in the lungs, skin, joints, or blood vessels.
28 AIDS AIDS is an immunodeficiency disorder caused by a virus that destroys helper T cells and that is harbored in macrophages as well as helper (T4) T cells. The AIDS virus splices its DNA into the DNA of the cell it infects; the cell is thereafter directed to churn out new viruses.
32 Immunity and Cancer When normal cells turn into cancer cells, some of the antigens on their surface change. These new or altered antigens flag immune defenders, (cytotoxic T cells, NK cells, and macrophages) that eliminate cancerous cells. Tumors develop when the surveillance system breaks down or is overwhelmed.
33 The Immune & Nervous Systems Hormones and other chemicals, (neuropeptides: messengers among nerve cells), "speak" to cells of the immune system and some immune cells even manufacture such chemicals (neuropeptides) Networks of nerve fibers connect directly to the lymphoid organs.
