Activity Tutorial

1st Line of Defense: Keep Out! Skin, mucous, cilia, skin oil, sweat, tears

2nd Line of Defense: Heat, Swell, and Kill! Fever--white mast cells and macrophages release chemical to cause body temperature to rise--interferons keep viruses from reproducing and white blood cells grow faster Inflammation--white mast cells and basophils release histamines--blood vessels walls thin to allow greater fluid movement in and out of surrounding tissues--white blood cells destroy pathogens Patrol--leukocytes, macrophages, phagocytes, natural killer cells, complement proteins

13 Minute Immune System

3rd Line of Defense: Attack Target! Memory cells that look for a specific antigen marker Lymphocytes--lymph system T cells--destroy infected body cells--phagocyte acquires antigen from eating pathogen--this activates T cell--binds and lyses infected cells--forms memory T cells--CELLULAR Immunity B cells--acquires antigen from pathogen--T cells activates B cell--B cell makes antibodies which destroy pathogens--phagocytes eat dead pathogens--Humoral Immunity
