Example text

Pathogen, the C3b,B complex is unstable and a protein called Factor H displaces Factor B. Factor I then acts on the C3b,H complex converting it to iC3b. Phagocytic cells possess receptors for iC3b which stimulate phagocytosis when they are bound much like the binding of C3b to its receptor, however iC3b does not appear to activate other components of the cascade so the response is not amplified. Cells of the Innate Immune System The cellular components of innate immunity consist of macrophages, neutrophils, Mast cells, eosinophils, and natural killer (NK) cells.

Processed peptide then binds to the cleft in MHC-I and this complex is expressed on the dendritic cell surface. Next a naive CD8+ T cell recognizes this peptide-MHC-I complex and binds to it via its TcR. CD28, another molecule associated with the TcR, then binds to B7 on the surface of the infected cell. This interaction between CD28 and B7 transduces a signal to the T cell interior causing it to produce IL-2. IL-2 then feedsback on the T cell causing it to proliferate. The progeny of the proliferative response differentiate into cytotoxic T cells in response to IL-2.

These individuals have no cell-mediated responses and humoral responses are depressed. Affected individuals also lack parathyroid glands and have cardiovascular abnormalities. The most pervasive immunodeficiency is severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). In these individuals defective recombinase enzymes prevent formation of T- and B cell receptors thus they are very susceptible to all infectious agents.
