Primary Immune Response

HideShow resource information
T helper cell
Produces cytokines to stimulate B cells to produce antibodies.
1 of 11
Antigen
Glycoproteins on the surface of cells that are unique to that cell.
2 of 11
Macrophage
Longer lived phagocyte that can kill up to 100 microbes.
3 of 11
Antigen-presenting cell
Cells that display non-self antigens on their surface.
4 of 11
T killer cell
Releases chemicals that cause the lysis of microbes.
5 of 11
T memory cell
As well as cloning active T helper cells these cells are produced which remain in the body for years. They allow faster response to the same antigen in the future.
6 of 11
B cell
Produce antibodies.
7 of 11
B memory cell
Remain in the body like T memory cells, enabling a quicker response to the same antigen in the future.
8 of 11
B effector cell
Differentiate to produce plasma cells, which release antibodies.
9 of 11
Cytokines
Proteins that stimulate the B cells.
10 of 11
Neutrophils
White blood cells that engulf and digest a small number of microbes.
