Cells of the Immune System

Cells of the Immune System

White Blood Cells

Phagocytes - Neutrophils

- Macrophages

Lymphocytes

Slide 4

Phagocytes

Phagocytes

Produced throughout life by the bone marrow.

Scavengers remove dead cells and microorganisms.

Slide 5

Phagocytes

Slide 6

Neutrophils

Neutrophils

60% of WBCs

Patrol tissues as they squeeze out of the capillaries.

Large numbers are released during infections

Short lived die after digesting bacteria

Dead neutrophils make up a large proportion of puss.

Slide 7

Macrophages

Macrophages

Larger than neutrophils.

Found in the organs, not the blood.

Made in bone marrow as monocytes, called macrophages once they reach organs.

Long lived

Initiate immune responses as they display antigens from the pathogens to the lymphocytes.

Phagocytosis

Phagocytosis

Slide 10

Phagocytosis

Phagocytosis

If cells are under attack they release histamine.

Histamine plus chemicals from pathogens mean neutrophils are attracted to the site of attack.

Pathogens are attached to antibodies and neutrophils have antibody receptors.

Enodcytosis of neutrophil membrane  phagocytic vacuole.

Lysosomes attach to phagocytic vacuole  pathogen digested by proteases

Slide 11

Lymphocytes

Lymphocytes

Produce antibodies

B-cells mature in bone marrow then concentrate in lymph nodes and spleen

T-cells mature in thymus

B and T cells mature then circulate in the blood and lymph

Circulation ensures they come into contact with pathogens and each other

Slide 12

B -Lymphocytes

B -Lymphocytes

There are c.10 million different B-lymphocytes, each of which make a different antibody.

The huge variety is caused by genes coding for abs changing slightly during development.

There are a small group of clones of each type of B-lymphocyte
