    • 1. Chapter 43 The Immune System
    • 2. Overview: Reconnaissance, Recognition, and Response
      • Barriers help an animal to defend itself from the many dangerous pathogens it may encounter
      • The immune system recognizes foreign bodies and responds with the production of immune cells and proteins
      • Two major kinds of defense have evolved: innate immunity and acquired immunity
    • 3. Fig. 43-1 1.5 µm
    • 4.
      • Innate immunity is present before any exposure to pathogens and is effective from the time of birth
      • It involves nonspecific responses to pathogens
      • Innate immunity consists of external barriers plus internal cellular and chemical defenses
    • 5.
      • Acquired immunity , or adaptive immunity, develops after exposure to agents such as microbes, toxins, or other foreign substances
      • It involves a very specific response to pathogens
    • 6. Fig. 43-2 INNATE IMMUNITY Recognition of traits shared by broad ranges of pathogens, using a small set of receptors • • Rapid response • Recognition of traits specific to particular pathogens, using a vast array of receptors • Slower response ACQUIRED IMMUNITY Pathogens (microorganisms and viruses) Barrier defenses: Skin Mucous membranes Secretions Internal defenses: Phagocytic cells Antimicrobial proteins Inflammatory response Natural killer cells Humoral response: Antibodies defend against infection in body fluids. Cell-mediated response: Cytotoxic lymphocytes defend against infection in body cells.
    • 7. Concept 43.1: In innate immunity, recognition and response rely on shared traits of pathogens
      • Both invertebrates and vertebrates depend on innate immunity to fight infection
      • Vertebrates also develop acquired immune defenses
    • 8. Innate Immunity of Invertebrates
      • In insects, an exoskeleton made of chitin forms the first barrier to pathogens
      • The digestive system is protected by low pH and lysozyme , an enzyme that digests microbial cell walls
      • Hemocytes circulate within hemolymph and carry out phagocytosis , the ingestion and digestion of foreign substances including bacteria
    • 9. Fig. 43-3 Microbes PHAGOCYTIC CELL Vacuole Lysosome containing enzymes
    • 10.
      • Hemocytes also secrete antimicrobial peptides that disrupt the plasma membranes of bacteria
    • 11. Fig. 43-4
    • 12.
      • The immune system recognizes bacteria and fungi by structures on their cell walls
      • An immune response varies with the class of pathogen encountered

    • 16. Innate Immunity of Vertebrates
      • The immune system of mammals is the best understood of the vertebrates
      • Innate defenses include barrier defenses, phagocytosis, antimicrobial peptides
      • Additional defenses are unique to vertebrates: the inflammatory response and natural killer cells
    • 17. Barrier Defenses
      • Barrier defenses include the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts
      • Mucus traps and allows for the removal of microbes
      • Many body fluids including saliva, mucus, and tears are hostile to microbes
      • The low pH of skin and the digestive system prevents growth of microbes
    • 18. Cellular Innate Defenses
      • White blood cells (leukocytes) engulf pathogens in the body
      • Groups of pathogens are recognized by TLR , Toll-like receptors
    • 19. Fig. 43-6 EXTRACELLULAR FLUID Lipopolysaccharide Flagellin TLR4 TLR5 Helper protein TLR9 TLR3 WHITE BLOOD CELL VESICLE CpG DNA ds RNA Inflammatory responses
    • 20.
      • A white blood cell engulfs a microbe, then fuses with a lysosome to destroy the microbe
      • There are different types of phagocytic cells:
        • Neutrophils engulf and destroy microbes
        • Macrophages are part of the lymphatic system and are found throughout the body
        • Eosinophils discharge destructive enzymes
        • Dendritic cells stimulate development of acquired immunity
    • 21. Fig. 43-7 Adenoid Tonsil Lymph nodes Spleen Peyer’s patches (small intestine) Appendix Lymphatic vessels Lymph node Masses of defensive cells Blood capillary Lymphatic vessel Tissue cells Interstitial fluid
    • 22. Antimicrobial Peptides and Proteins
      • Peptides and proteins function in innate defense by attacking microbes directly or impeding their reproduction
      • Interferon proteins provide innate defense against viruses and help activate macrophages
      • About 30 proteins make up the complement system , which causes lysis of invading cells and helps trigger inflammation
    • 23. Inflammatory Responses
      • Following an injury, mast cells release histamine , which promotes changes in blood vessels; this is part of the inflammatory response
      • These changes increase local blood supply and allow more phagocytes and antimicrobial proteins to enter tissues
      • Pus, a fluid rich in white blood cells, dead microbes, and cell debris, accumulates at the site of inflammation
    • 24. Fig. 43-8-1 Pathogen Splinter Macrophage Mast cell Chemical signals Capillary Phagocytic cell Red blood cells
    • 25. Fig. 43-8-2 Pathogen Splinter Macrophage Mast cell Chemical signals Capillary Phagocytic cell Red blood cells Fluid

    • 27.
      • Inflammation can be either local or systemic (throughout the body)
      • Fever is a systemic inflammatory response triggered by pyrogens released by macrophages, and toxins from pathogens
      • Septic shock is a life-threatening condition caused by an overwhelming inflammatory response
    • 28. Natural Killer Cells
      • All cells in the body (except red blood cells) have a class 1 MHC protein on their surface
      • Cancerous or infected cells no longer express this protein; natural killer (NK) cells attack these damaged cells
    • 29. Innate Immune System Evasion by Pathogens
      • Some pathogens avoid destruction by modifying their surface to prevent recognition or by resisting breakdown following phagocytosis
      • Tuberculosis (TB) is one such disease and kills more than a million people a year
    • 30. Concept 43.2: In acquired immunity, lymphocyte receptors provide pathogen-specific recognition
      • White blood cells called lymphocytes recognize and respond to antigens, foreign molecules
      • Lymphocytes that mature in the thymus above the heart are called T cells , and those that mature in bone marrow are called B cells
    • 31.
      • Lymphocytes contribute to immunological memory, an enhanced response to a foreign molecule encountered previously
      • Cytokines are secreted by macrophages and dendritic cells to recruit and activate lymphocytes
    • 32. Acquired Immunity: An Overview
      • B cells and T cells have receptor proteins that can bind to foreign molecules
      • Each individual lymphocyte is specialized to recognize a specific type of molecule
    • 33. Antigen Recognition by Lymphocytes
      • An antigen is any foreign molecule to which a lymphocyte responds
      • A single B cell or T cell has about 100,000 identical antigen receptors
    • 34.

    • 37.
      • All antigen receptors on a single lymphocyte recognize the same epitope, or antigenic determinant , on an antigen
      • B cells give rise to plasma cells , which secrete proteins called antibodies or immunoglobulins
    • 38. Fig. 43-10 Antigen-binding sites Antigen- binding sites Epitopes (antigenic determinants) Antigen Antibody B Antibody C Antibody A C C C V V V V C
    • 39. The Antigen Receptors of B Cells and T Cells
      • B cell receptors bind to specific, intact antigens
      • The B cell receptor consists of two identical heavy chains and two identical light chains
      • The tips of the chains form a constant (C) region , and each chain contains a variable (V) region , so named because its amino acid sequence varies extensively from one B cell to another
    • 40.
      • Secreted antibodies, or immunoglobulins, are structurally similar to B cell receptors but lack transmembrane regions that anchor receptors in the plasma membrane
    • 41.
      • Each T cell receptor consists of two different polypeptide chains
      • The tips of the chain form a variable (V) region; the rest is a constant (C) region
      • T cells can bind to an antigen that is free or on the surface of a pathogen
      Video: T Cell Receptors
    • 42.
      • T cells bind to antigen fragments presented on a host cell
      • These antigen fragments are bound to cell-surface proteins called MHC molecules
      • MHC molecules are so named because they are encoded by a family of genes called the major histocompatibility complex
    • 43. The Role of the MHC
      • In infected cells, MHC molecules bind and transport antigen fragments to the cell surface, a process called antigen presentation
      • A nearby T cell can then detect the antigen fragment displayed on the cell’s surface
      • Depending on their source, peptide antigens are handled by different classes of MHC molecules
    • 44. Fig. 43-11 Antigen Top view: binding surface exposed to antigen receptors Plasma membrane of infected cell Antigen Class I MHC molecule
    • 45.
      • Class I MHC molecules are found on almost all nucleated cells of the body
      • They display peptide antigens to cytotoxic T cells
    • 46. Fig. 43-12 Infected cell Antigen fragment Class I MHC molecule T cell receptor (a) Antigen associates with MHC molecule T cell recognizes combination Cytotoxic T cell (b) Helper T cell T cell receptor Class II MHC molecule Antigen fragment Antigen- presenting cell Microbe 1 1 1 2 2 2
    • 47.
      • Class II MHC molecules are located mainly on dendritic cells, macrophages, and B cells
      • Dendritic cells, macrophages, and B cells are antigen-presenting cells that display antigens to cytotoxic T cells and helper T cells
    • 48. Lymphocyte Development
      • The acquired immune system has three important properties:
        • Receptor diversity
        • A lack of reactivity against host cells
        • Immunological memory
    • 49. Generation of Lymphocyte Diversity by Gene Rearrangement
      • Differences in the variable region account for specificity of antigen receptors
      • The immunoglobulin ( Ig ) gene encodes one chain of the B cell receptor
      • Many different chains can be produced from the same Ig chain gene by rearrangement of the DNA
      • Rearranged DNA is transcribed and translated and the antigen receptor formed
    • 50.

    • 51. Origin of Self-Tolerance
      • Antigen receptors are generated by random rearrangement of DNA
      • As lymphocytes mature in bone marrow or the thymus, they are tested for self-reactivity
      • Lymphocytes with receptors specific for the body’s own molecules are destroyed by apoptosis, or rendered nonfunctional
    • 52. Amplifying Lymphocytes by Clonal Selection
      • In the body there are few lymphocytes with antigen receptors for any particular epitope
      • The binding of a mature lymphocyte to an antigen induces the lymphocyte to divide rapidly
      • This proliferation of lymphocytes is called clonal selection
      • Two types of clones are produced: short-lived activated effector cells and long-lived memory cells
    • 53. Fig. 43-14 B cells that differ in antigen specificity Antibody molecules Antigen receptor Antigen molecules Clone of memory cells Clone of plasma cells
    • 54.
      • The first exposure to a specific antigen represents the primary immune response
      • During this time, effector B cells called plasma cells are generated, and T cells are activated to their effector forms
      • In the secondary immune response , memory cells facilitate a faster, more efficient response
      Animation: Role of B Cells
    • 55. Fig. 43-15 Antibodies to A Antibodies to B Secondary immune response to antigen A produces antibodies to A; primary immune response to antigen B produces antibodies to B. Primary immune response to antigen A produces antibodies to A.

    • 56. Concept 43.3: Acquired immunity defends against infection of body cells and fluids
      • Acquired immunity has two branches: the humoral immune response and the cell-mediated immune response
      • Humoral immune response involves activation and clonal selection of B cells, resulting in production of secreted antibodies
      • Cell-mediated immune response involves activation and clonal selection of cytotoxic T cells
      • Helper T cells aid both responses

    • 60. Helper T Cells: A Response to Nearly All Antigens
      • A surface protein called CD4 binds the class II MHC molecule
      • This binding keeps the helper T cell joined to the antigen-presenting cell while activation occurs
      • Activated helper T cells secrete cytokines that stimulate other lymphocytes

    • 62. Cytotoxic T Cells: A Response to Infected Cells
      • Cytotoxic T cells are the effector cells in cell-mediated immune response
      • Cytotoxic T cells make CD8 , a surface protein that greatly enhances interaction between a target cell and a cytotoxic T cell
      • Binding to a class I MHC complex on an infected cell activates a cytotoxic T cell and makes it an active killer
      • The activated cytotoxic T cell secretes proteins that destroy the infected target cell

    • 66. B Cells: A Response to Extracellular Pathogens
      • The humoral response is characterized by secretion of antibodies by B cells
      • Activation of B cells is aided by cytokines and antigen binding to helper T cells
      • Clonal selection of B cells generates antibody-secreting plasma cells, the effector cells of humoral immunity

    • 72. Antibody Classes
      • The five major classes of antibodies, or immunoglobulins, differ in distribution and function
      • Polyclonal antibodies are the products of many different clones of B cells following exposure to a microbial antigen
      • Monoclonal antibodies are prepared from a single clone of B cells grown in culture
    • 73.

      • Neutralization occurs when a pathogen can no longer infect a host because it is bound to an antibody
      • Opsonization occurs when antibodies bound to antigens increase phagocytosis
      • Antibodies together with proteins of the complement system generate a membrane attack complex and cell lysis

    • 84. Active and Passive Immunization
      • Active immunity develops naturally in response to an infection
      • It can also develop following immunization , also called vaccination
      • In immunization, a nonpathogenic form of a microbe or part of a microbe elicits an immune response to an immunological memory
    • 85.
      • Passive immunity provides immediate, short-term protection
      • It is conferred naturally when IgG crosses the placenta from mother to fetus or when IgA passes from mother to infant in breast milk
      • It can be conferred artificially by injecting antibodies into a nonimmune person
    • 86. Fig. 43-22
    • 87. Immune Rejection
      • Cells transferred from one person to another can be attacked by immune defenses
      • This complicates blood transfusions or the transplant of tissues or organs
    • 88. Blood Groups
      • Antigens on red blood cells determine whether a person has blood type A (A antigen), B (B antigen), AB (both A and B antigens), or O (neither antigen)
      • Antibodies to nonself blood types exist in the body
      • Transfusion with incompatible blood leads to destruction of the transfused cells
      • Recipient-donor combinations can be fatal or safe
    • 89. Tissue and Organ Transplants
      • MHC molecules are different among genetically nonidentical individuals
      • Differences in MHC molecules stimulate rejection of tissue grafts and organ transplants
    • 90.
      • Chances of successful transplantation increase if donor and recipient MHC tissue types are well matched
      • Immunosuppressive drugs facilitate transplantation
      • Lymphocytes in bone marrow transplants may cause the donor tissue to reject the recipient
    • 91. Concept 43.4: Disruption in immune system function can elicit or exacerbate disease
      • Some pathogens have evolved to diminish the effectiveness of host immune responses
    • 92. Exaggerated, Self-Directed, and Diminished Immune Responses
      • If the delicate balance of the immune system is disrupted, effects range from minor to often fatal
    • 93. Allergies
      • Allergies are exaggerated (hypersensitive) responses to antigens called allergens
      • In localized allergies such as hay fever, IgE antibodies produced after first exposure to an allergen attach to receptors on mast cells
    • 94. Fig. 43-23 Allergen IgE Granule Mast cell Histamine
    • 95.
      • The next time the allergen enters the body, it binds to mast cell–associated IgE molecules
      • Mast cells release histamine and other mediators that cause vascular changes leading to typical allergy symptoms
      • An acute allergic response can lead to anaphylactic shock, a life-threatening reaction that can occur within seconds of allergen exposure
    • 96. Autoimmune Diseases
      • In individuals with autoimmune diseases , the immune system loses tolerance for self and turns against certain molecules of the body
      • Autoimmune diseases include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and multiple sclerosis
    • 97. Fig. 43-24
    • 98. Exertion, Stress, and the Immune System
      • Moderate exercise improves immune system function
      • Psychological stress has been shown to disrupt hormonal, nervous, and immune systems
    • 99. Immunodeficiency Diseases
      • Inborn immunodeficiency results from hereditary or developmental defects that prevent proper functioning of innate, humoral, and/or cell-mediated defenses
      • Acquired immunodeficiency results from exposure to chemical and biological agents
      • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is caused by a virus
    • 100. Acquired Immune System Evasion by Pathogens
      • Pathogens have evolved mechanisms to attack immune responses
    • 101. Antigenic Variation
      • Through antigenic variation, some pathogens are able to change epitope expression and prevent recognition
      • The human influenza virus mutates rapidly, and new flu vaccines must be made each year
      • Human viruses occasionally exchange genes with the viruses of domesticated animals
      • This poses a danger as human immune systems are unable to recognize the new viral strain
    • 102. Fig. 43-25 Weeks after infection Millions of parasites per mL of blood Antibodies to variant 1 appear Antibodies to variant 2 appear Antibodies to variant 3 appear Variant 3 Variant 2 Variant 1 25 26 27 28 0 0.5 1.0 1.5
    • 103. Latency
      • Some viruses may remain in a host in an inactive state called latency
      • Herpes simplex viruses can be present in a human host without causing symptoms
    • 104. Attack on the Immune System: HIV
      • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infects helper T cells
      • The loss of helper T cells impairs both the humoral and cell-mediated immune responses and leads to AIDS
      • HIV eludes the immune system because of antigenic variation and an ability to remain latent while integrated into host DNA
      Animation: HIV Reproductive Cycle

    • 106.
      • People with AIDS are highly susceptible to opportunistic infections and cancers that take advantage of an immune system in collapse
      • The spread of HIV is a worldwide problem
      • The best approach for slowing this spread is education about practices that transmit the virus
    • 107. Cancer and Immunity
      • The frequency of certain cancers increases when the immune response is impaired
      • Two suggested explanations are
        • Immune system normally suppresses cancerous cells
        • Increased inflammation increases the risk of cancer
