What are b-cells and its functions?

Antibodies: B cells are immune cells that develop in the Bone marrow and mature in the lymphoid organs. They make antibodies that protect our bodies from foreign invaders such as viruses. Most vaccines work by stimulating our body's B cells to make antibodies so that they can already be present to protect us when we are exposed to an actual viral infection. ...Read more

What are T cells?

What are T cells?

Type of lymphocyte: When lymphocytes were first recognized as a small population of the white blood cells, Bob Good divided them into T and B cells. The T cells were matured in the Thymus and the B cells in the Bursa of Fabricius found in the chicken. The B cells produce antibody andthe T cells contain cells ie. Th 1, making IL2 and the Th2 IL 10. The TH 1 targets bacteria and viruses. ...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 binds to mast cells and causes them to degranulate?

What binds to mast cells and causes them to degranulate?

Amongst others, IgE: IgE is an antibody that binds to the mast cell surface (aka "allergy antibody"). Its binding to an allergen causes the mast cell to deganulate. Non-IgE molecules can also cause mast cells to degranulate or just lower the threshold level for degranulation. These include signalling molecules (cytokines/hormones), drugs such as narcotics and NSAIDS, neuropeptides, tissue injury and microbes/toxins ...Read more
