Cell Interactions in Humoral and Cell-mediated Immunity
NCBI Bookshelf. New York: Garland Science; Many of the bacteria that cause infectious disease in humans multiply in the extracellular spaces of the body, and most intracellular pathogens spread by moving from cell to cell through the extracellular fluids.
The extracellular spaces are protected by the humoral immune response , in which antibodies produced by B cells cause the destruction of extracellular microorganisms and prevent the spread of intracellular infections.
The activation of B cells and their differentiation into antibody -secreting plasma cells Fig. In this chapter we will therefore use the term helper T cell to mean any armed effector CD4 T cell that can activate a B cell. Helper T cells also control isotype switching and have a role in initiating somatic hypermutation of antibody variable V-region genes, molecular processes that were described in Chapter 4. The humoral immune response is mediated by antibody molecules that are secreted by plasma cells.
Antigen that binds to the B-cell antigen receptor signals B cells and is, at the same time, internalized and processed into peptides that activate armed helper more Antibodies contribute to immunity in three main ways see Fig. To enter cells, viruses and intracellular bacteria bind to specific molecules on the target cell surface. Antibodies that bind to the pathogen can prevent this and are said to neutralize the pathogen.
Neutralization by antibodies is also important in preventing bacterial toxins from entering cells. Antibodies protect against bacteria that multiply outside cells mainly by facilitating uptake of the pathogen by phagocytic cells that are specialized to destroy ingested bacteria. Antibodies do this in either of two ways. In the first, bound antibodies coating the pathogen are recognized by Fc receptors on phagocytic cells that bind to the antibody constant C region see Section Coating the surface of a pathogen to enhance phagocytosis is called opsonization.
Alternatively, antibodies binding to the surface of a pathogen can activate the proteins of the complement system, which was described in Chapter 2. Complement activation results in complement proteins being bound to the pathogen surface, and these opsonize the pathogen by binding complement receptors on phagocytes. Other complement components recruit phagocytic cells to the site of infection, and the terminal components of complement can lyse certain microorganisms directly by forming pores in their membranes.
Which effector mechanisms are engaged in a particular response is determined by the isotype or class of the antibodies produced. In the first part of this chapter we will describe the interactions of B cells with helper T cells that lead to the production of antibodies, the affinity maturation of this antibody response, the isotype switching that confers functional diversity, and the generation of memory B cells that provide long-lasting immunity to reinfection.
In the rest of the chapter we will discuss in detail the mechanisms whereby antibodies contain and eliminate infections. By agreement with the publisher, this book is accessible by the search feature, but cannot be browsed. Turn recording back on. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U.
The Role of Humoral and Cell-Mediated Adaptive Immune Response
Cell-mediated immunity is an immune response that does not involve antibodies. Rather, cell -mediated immunity is the activation of phagocytes , antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes , and the release of various cytokines in response to an antigen. In the late 19th century Hippocratic tradition medicine system, the immune system was imagined into two branches: humoral immunity , for which the protective function of immunization could be found in the humor cell-free bodily fluid or serum and cellular immunity , for which the protective function of immunization was associated with cells. CD4 cells or helper T cells provide protection against different pathogens. Naive T cells , which are immature T cells that have yet to encounter an antigen , are converted into activated effector T cells after encountering antigen-presenting cells APCs. These APCs, such as macrophages , dendritic cells , and B cells in some circumstances, load antigenic peptides onto the MHC of the cell, in turn presenting the peptide to receptors on T cells.
When bacteria, such as Neisseria meningitidis, invade the body, they are attacked by immune proteins called complement proteins. Complement proteins assist in bacterial killing via three pathways, the classical complement pathway, the alternative complement pathway or the lectin pathway. The first steps of the classical complement pathway require the binding of antibodies to the surface of the target bacterium. The antibodies then become targets for one particular complement protein complex, known as C1 — C1 binds to the tail known as Fc region of the antibody.
The humoral immune response defends against pathogens that are free in the blood by using antibodies against pathogen-specific antigens. It relies on antigens which are also often free in the humours to detect these pathogens. An antigen is a biomolecule, such as a protein or sugar, that binds to a specific antibody.
