Acquired Immunity Lecture Materials
These are the Immunology: Acquired Immunity Lecture materials of the Virtual Microbiology Classroom. The resources below are used to supplement an actual college microbiology course. Anyone taking, teaching or interested in biology may find these materials helpful and is welcome to use them.
The Immunology:Acquired Immunity Lecture materials include:
- a list of learning objectives
- links to additional educational resources
- Which leukocytes are part of nonspecific immune function? Which are part of specific immune function?
- What is our third line of defense against pathogens? What are its components?
- Understand what antigens are, and be able to describe the different types.
- Be able to describe what an epitope is. What is another term for epitope?
- Understand what antibodies are, what they can do, and which cell type produces them.
- What are antigen presenting cells?
- What is the major histocompatibility complex and MHC glycoproteins.
- Know the function and components of the lymphoid system to the level that we discussed in lecture/PPT.
- Know the different types of lymphocytes and their functions.
- What are B cells? Name the types and describe what they do.
- What are B-cell receptors? How is their function different from MHC molecules?
- What are T cells? Name the types and describe what they do.
- What are T-cell receptors? How is their function different from MHC molecules?
- What is the humoral immune response? Which cells and chemicals are involved?
- What is the relationship between B-cells and T-cells in the humoral immune response?
- What is cell-mediated immune response? Which cells and chemicals are involved?
- What is the difference between specific and nonspecific immune function? Which aspects of immune function are nonspecific and which are specific?
Versions of Acquired Immunity PPT:
All of the lecture PowerPoints used in the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom are fill-in-the-blank format to encourage students to pay attention and follow along during the presentation.
The best way for students to print out the PowerPoint Show is to download the PDF version. Select Print, and, when the Print screen comes up, go to the Print Handling options. Under Page Scaling, select "Multiple pages per sheet", Under Pages per sheet, select "2". That uses up less paper, placing two slides on each page.
Word document of a homework assignment that prompts students to explore the aspects of innate and acquired immunity that might be involved in a Chlamydia trachomatis infection. This tool helps the students review their understanding of how the immune system protects the body from infection, while allowing the instructor to assess the class' understanding of the material.
PRACTICE TEST & REVIEW QUESTIONS
These multiple-choice / matching practice test questions and essay review questions are designed to help you better understand the material from this lecture.
