Ch 43- Immune system
- circulate within hemolymph and carry out phagocytosis, the ingestion and digestion of foreign substances including bacteria
- also secrete antimicrobial peptides that disrupt the plasma membranes of fungi and bacteria
Masses ofdefensive cells
Mature B cell
Mature T cell
Activated by cytokines, from helper T cells
- aid in recognition of “self”
- Class I – found on nearly all body cells
- can present fragments of proteins made by infecting microbes to cytotoxic T cells
- Class II – made by some cells of immune system
- macrophages & B cells
- molecules collect remnants of microbes and present them to helper T cells
