  • Immunity
    • Humoral Response
      • B Cells are covered with antibodies and so are specific to certain antigens.
      • When the B Cell is activated (joins to its antigen) It divides to produce plasma cells (memory cells).
    • Cell mediated response
      • T Cells are a type of White Blood Cell. It has proteins on its surface that bind to the antigens presented to it by phagocytes.
      • Some T Cells release substances to activate B Cells, some attach to antigens on a pathogen and kill the cell.
    • Monoclonal Antibodies   are antibodies produced from a single group of genetically identical B Cells.
