What are the differences between helper T cells and B cells?

What are the differences between helper T cells and B cells?

Lymphocytes: Part of white blood cells, there are different types of lymphocytes, all look alike under the microscope, their functions differ, as their names imply, helper T cells orchestrate most of the immune system functions,killer T cells,are one of the first lines of body defence against invading microorganisms,and B cells' main function is to produce antibodies against microbes with the help of T cells ...Read more

What are B cells and T cells?

What are B cells and T cells?

White blood cells: B-cells make antibodies. Each single B-cell, after maturing by modifying its DNA, produces one type of antibody that is specific for a single target. If the body decides that it is a good antibody, the B-cell moves to the bone marrow making that antibody for years. Some T-cells kill damaged cells (eg after viral infection or pre-tumor cells). Other T-cells act as messenger guiding inflammation ...Read more

What type of cells are B cells and T cells?

What type of cells are B cells and T cells?

Lymphcytes: When blood is examined under the microscope an array of cells are defined mostly RBC but also larger white cells known as polymorphoneuclear WBC's, marcrophages and a group of small round cells known as lymphocytes. Robt Good was able to subclassify them into T and B cells, the former providing the cytotoxic CD8 cells and B cells producing antibody to attack invaders. ...Read more

What are the differences between naive t cells and helper t cells?

What are the differences between naive t cells and helper t cells?

Complex: Shall try to make it simple: naive T cell is a mature T cell, that either differentiates into CD4+ cell, helper T cell , or CD8+ cell, cytotoxic T lymphocyte CTL. Each has a different function in the intricate immune system ...Read more

What are the functions of B cells and T cells?

What are the functions of B cells and T cells?

Lymphocytes: T cells, different types, master the specific immune system, while B cells mainly produce different types of antibodies, under the the control T cells, to fight invading microorganisms and/or invading antigens, just simply put for a very complex system (the immune system) ...Read more

What is the difference between humoral and cellular responses as shown by b cells and t cels?

Different targets: There is no question cytotoxic T cells recognize antigen expressed in bacteria and viruses and for the most part keep infections under control. With Tumor systems it appears that cells infiltrating Tumors (TILL cells) don't accomplish much. Here it has been shown that B cells making antibodies release the mAbs to activate tumor destruction by CD16 (NK) cells via ADCC. ...Read more

How do bacteria trigger the b and t white blood cells?

How do bacteria trigger the b and t white blood cells?

Yes - normally: I'm not sure of the question. The immune system has many cells but includes the b and t lymphocytes are normally activated and respond to infection including bacterial infection. So, the normal immune system is stimulated by normal potential risks to the body including bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The predominant cell vs bacteria are neutrophils. ...Read more

Why dont MHC 1 complexes present ALL HIV fragments to cytotoxic T cells in order for host cell degradation in order remove all HIV from every cell?

Why dont MHC 1 complexes present ALL HIV fragments to cytotoxic T cells in order for host cell degradation in order remove all HIV from every cell?

In the genes: DNA integrated into the genome is undetectable, of course, and once the cells start making more HIV it happens faster than the imimune cells can stop it. HIV has other ways of escaping surveillance as well, more than 400 characters can cover -- you can find plenty to read with help from a good medical librarian. Best wishes. ...Read more

What shows that b cells or t cells have developed immunocompetence?

Clinically: There would be signs of immune competence, literally, absence of repeated infections and healthy life, laboratory wise, normal cbcd, normal Lymphocyte enumeration, Immunoglobulins titers and blastogenesis to start with, more specific labs as needed ...Read more

Why does neuron cells die and leave very few cells to produce dopamine?

Why does neuron cells die and leave very few cells to produce dopamine?

Loss of dopamine: producing cells can occur for many reason including programmed cell death, manganese poisoning, stroke, encephalitis MPTP exposure etc, If one could nail down the exact underlying mechanism of Apoptosis (programmed cell death) this might lead to disease modifying treatments for conditions like Parkinson's Disease. , ...Read more

What is the difference between plasma cells n blast cells?

What is the difference between plasma cells n blast cells?

Cell Type: Plasma cells are a specific type of white blood cell and can be normal or abnormal depending upon the context. Blast cells are an immature cell found in the bone marrow whcih under normal circumstances lead to the production of cellular components of blood (WBC, plateltes, RBC). In leukemias that is a break in the maturation process of these cells leading to an accumulation of "blast Cells". ...Read more

When testing the immune system can bloods test. B cells t cells nk killer cells, what is the best way to test immune function in depth?

When testing the immune system can bloods test. B cells t cells nk killer cells, what is the best way to test immune function in depth?

Good start: Yes, the parameters you mentioned can be tested easily, and there are numerous other tests which may help to assess "immune function" which can be utilized depending upon the clinical situation and indices of suspicion. You might see either an infectious diseases expert or an immunologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Does 15 percent plasma cells in b m b lead to myloma?

Does 15 percent plasma cells in b m b lead to myloma?

It may: While 15 % plasma cells in bone marrow is suspicoipus, doctors (hematologists) usestrict criteria for diagnosing diseases conditions affecting bone marrow like myeloma, for which the, patient also needs to have anemia, bony lesions on Xray, presence of special proteins in blood and invovement of organ damage like kidney etc ...Read more
