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 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

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 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 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 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 does one differentiate between infection n malignancy in the bone marrow plasma cell percentage?

How does one differentiate between infection n malignancy in the bone marrow plasma cell percentage?

Monoclonal or not: Malignant plasma cells are monoclonal in that they are copies of each other and produce the same antibody. This antibody can be identified in urine or blood tests in malignancy. Increased plasma cells due to infection are polyclonal (not copies of each other) and produce non-identical antibodies. ...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

What is the difference between endocrine cells and target cells?

What is the difference between endocrine cells and target cells?

Endocrine physiology: I am not sure what you are reading and trying to interpret. But presumably "Endocrine cells" refers to the cells of the endocrine organ itself, whereas "target cells" are the cells of the organ that the hormone goes to. Ex. thyroid hormone is made by thyroid endocrine cells, and circulate in blood and interact with target cells in the heart to increase heart rate. ...Read more

What is the difference between neural crest cells and neuroepithelial cells?

Neural cells: Neural crest cells are migratory cells that give rise to melanocytes, craniofacial cartilage & bone, smooth muscle, peripheral & enteric neurons & glia. Neuroepithelial cells are the stem cells of the nervous system which form neurons, astrocytes & other glial cells. The are called Neuroblasts. ...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

What is the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells?

What is the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells?

Abnormal signaling..: Normal cells can grow and divide, but they do so in a manner that is not detrimental to a person. When they receive cellular signaling that says "stop dividing", they listen. Cancer cells have lost this control. Usually cancer cells acquire mutations that both drive the cells to divide while at the same time cause them to cease responding to signals that say stop dividing. ...Read more
