  • T-cell response
    • Receptors on t-helper cells fit onto the anitgens
      • Other T-cells are activated and divide rapidly
        • Cloned t-cells can then
          • Develop memory cells
          • Stimulate phagocytosis
          • Stimulate B-cells
          • Kill infected body cells
  • B-cell reponse
    • Antibody on the surface (of B-cell) attach to a complementary  antigen on the pathogen
  • Then divide and produce B-cells  with the specific antibody
    • Antibody on the surface (of B-cell) attach to a complementary  antigen on the pathogen
    • The B-cells then delvelop into
      • Plasma cells which secrete antibodies producing a primary resposne
      • Memory cells; they don't produce antibodies but if the come in to contact with the antigen again the divide rapidly
