Biological Examples. Degenerate components compensate for one another under conditions where they are functionally redundant, thus providing robustness against component or pathway failure. There are numerous biological examples where degeneracy contributes to robustness in this way.

*  Stranger than you can imagine: Mechanism for mitochondria failure during immune system activation
Mechanism for mitochondria failure during immune system activation. The roots of autism : How immune system activation can cause regression with/without autism and with/without mitochondrial failure. The main focus of this article is on the generation of superoxide by mitochondria under high NO levels causing mitochondria depletion which causes high superoxide due to higher mitochondrial potential. Acute mitochondria failure In a nutshell, mitochondria failure during immune system activation results from mitochondria being pushed to a high potential where they generate a high superoxide flux under conditions of high NO. That is, the cells become so depleted in ATP that they do not have enough ATP to repair the damage and recover. NO happens to be an important one in the context of immune system activation. Because much of the regulation of mitochondria depends on the interplay between NO and superoxide, what happens when mitochondria don't make enough superoxide. If the number of mitochondria drops below the ...

... Newborn babies’ immune system development and levels of vitamin D have been found to vary according to their month of birth, according to new research. Image credit: Milan Jurek The research, from scientists at Queen Mary, University of London and the University of Oxford, provides a potential biological basis as to why an individual’s risk of developing the neurological condition multiple sclerosis MS is influenced by their month of birth. In this study, samples of cord blood – blood extracted from a newborn baby’s umbilical cord – were taken from 50 babies born in November and 50 born in May between 2009 and 2010 in London. The blood was analysed to measure levels of vitamin D and levels of autoreactive T-cells. by the immune system during its development. The results showed that the May babies had significantly lower levels of vitamin D around 20 per cent lower than those born in November and significantly higher levels approximately double of these autoreactive T-cells, compared to the sample of Nove...

Immune system development in foals In Part 1 of this series, an equine research team explains two key immune factors transfer of proinflammatory cytokines to the foal and the foal's ability to respond to antigens. A group of Cornell researchers that included Felippe found that "the transfer of cytokines in colostrum to equine neonates could have immunomodulatory effects and help with protection early in life. Perhaps foals with inadequate colostral ingestion and absorption may be more susceptible to infectious diseases not only because of the critical concentrations of IgG but also because of low proinflammatory cytokine transfer from colostrum—both important to help fight off pathogens before competence of their own immune systems are developed." 1. This research determined that "serum TNF-alpha concentrations were high in postsuckle samples, though essentially undetectable in presu...

*  Innate immune system can kill HIV when a viral gene is deactivated
... March 28, 2013 in Medicine Health / HIV & AIDS Human cells have an intrinsic capacity to destroy HIV. When this gene is removed from the virus, the innate human immune system destroys HIV by mutating it to the point where it can no longer survive. This phenomenon has been shown in test tube laboratory experiments, but now researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine have demonstrated that the same phenomenon occurs in a humanized mouse model, suggesting a promising new target for tackling the virus, which has killed nearly 30 million people worldwide since it first appeared three decades ago. A family of human proteins called APOBEC3 effectively restrict the growth of HIV and other viruses, but this action is fully counteracted by the viral infectivity factor gene vif in HIV. In the study, researchers intravenously infected humanized mice with HIV. They found that the most commonly transmitted strains of HIV are completely neutralized by APOBEC3 proteins when vif is removed from the...

... HIV/AIDS Basics. Key Cells of the Immune System Some key cells of the immune system are: Neutrophils Dendritic cells and macrophages Helper and Killer T cells Natural killer cells B cells. When CD4 cells "see" the antigens displayed, they get busy and put the word out to other immune system cells. In other words, these cells coordinate and direct the activity of other types of immune cells -- such as killer T cells, B cells, and macrophages -- calling them into action to fight the intruder. Both killer T cells and suppressor T cells are also known as CD8 cells. Natural Killer Cells Natural killer, or NK cells also destroy infected or abnormal cells. NK cells are an important part of the early response to viral infections because they kill cells infected by virus while the body is recruiting killer T cells into action.

When microbes make it past these protective coverings, though, your immune system’s organs, tissues, and cells are there to fight off the invaders. To launch an immune response, your body has to be able to tell the difference between cells or substances that are “self” part of you versus “non-self” not part of you and potentially harmful. All of your body’s cells carry specific proteins on their surfaces that help the immune system recognize them as “self.” That’s why the immune system usually doesn’t attack your body’s own tissues. “Non-self” materials have proteins and other substances on their surfaces that the body doesn’t recognize, called antigens.

Special immune cells in the body are able to react to foreign invaders that don t belong in the body to get rid of them or to neutralize them.

About 25 million would fit on the head of a pin. Retroviruses use RNA as their genetic material, carrying with them a protein called reverse transcriptase RT to copy their RNA into DNA. Another protein, called integrase, then integrates the viral DNA into the cell's genome, and the cell begins to make the proteins needed to produce a functioning virus. But the RT does sloppy work, so the DNA copies of HIV's genome are always a little different than the RNA originals. This is one of the root causes of HIV's diversity. HIV has nine genes, three of which gag, pol, and env encode for polyproteins that get broken into smaller proteins. The Gag proteins...

[figure: AIDS virus ] Variation in the Virus and Its Victims To understand how HIV can so completely compromise its victims' immune systems and why designing an effective vaccine is such a difficult task we must appreciate the genetic variation in both the virus and its victims. [figure: HIV subtypes ] For HIV victims, this viral variability is further complicated by human genetic variation. In the context of normal immune system function, they are key molecular intermediaries in the process by which the two major types of immune system T cells T-helper cells and cytotoxic T cells recognize invading pathogens such as bacteria and viruses see the sidebar: How HIV cripples. Specifically, the cytotoxic T cells of our immune system recognize these HLA proteins as molecular billboards, advertising that other body cells are virus-infected and should be killed. Using a combination of viral molecular fragments and the HLA Class-I proteins, cytotoxic T cells can detect and attack HIV-infected T-helper cells, killing c...

September 24, 2012 Immune system molecule affects our weight September 24, 2012 Researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have identified a molecule in the immune system that could affect hunger and satiety. Interleukin-6 is a chemical messenger in our immune system that plays an important role in fighting off infection. Researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, have been investigating and managed to identify the specific types of brain cells that are targeted by the interleukin-6 molecule. The results show that the cells that are affected by interleukin-6 produce substances that not only affect our sense of hunger and fullness but also control the body's ability to burn fat. "Interleukin-6 increases levels of substances in the brain that trigger weight loss, which could explain why high levels of this molecule lead to weight loss," says doctoral student Erik Schéle, who is presenting the results in his thesis.

September 11, 2011 Genetic controller prepares immune system for diverse threats September 11, 2011 An army of immune cells circulates the human body to protect against its potential foes viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, and other invaders. Now, Howard Hughes Medical Institute scientists have identified a genetic regulator that controls the reshuffling of gene segments that immune cells use to manufacture billions of distinct antibodies and pathogen-recognizing receptors from a limited number of genes. Mutating that regulatory region, the scientists have discovered, causes a cell to create an incorrect mishmash of antibody parts. The finding is important not only for understanding how antibodies are made, but for understanding how gene regulation can be coordinated across distant regions of the genome. Alt of Children s Hospital Boston, who has spent his career studying how the immune system generates diverse antibodies, says the discovery of this master regulator is the culmination of decades of work in...

May 17, 2011 Understanding a bacterial immune system one step at a time May 17, 2011 Researchers at the University of Alberta have taken an important step in understanding an immune system of bacteria, a finding that could have implications for medical care and both the pharmaceutical and dairy industries. In research published in the high impact journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, Andrew MacMillan and co-workers in his lab have described the first step of the immune response of bacterial cells. Scientists had previously found that a bacterial virus, called a bacteriophage, attacks a bacterial cell by injecting its DNA in to the cell. MacMillan's lab discovered the mechanism by which bacterial RNA is cut into pieces by a specific protein; these pieces then target the invading virus' DNA.

Buyers clubs purchase drugs approved overseas but not in the U.S. AIDS activists have pushed the government to streamline and accelerate the testing and approval process, through such innovations as parallel tracking, so that a promising treatment can go through several stages of testing at the same time, expanded access, which conditionally releases treatments in the final stages of testing to people with AIDS, and special task forces to oversee and coordinate all drug trials related to AIDS.

 (+info)

(2/10) Inhibitory RNA molecules in immunotherapy for cancer.

 (+info)

(3/10) The ancestry and cumulative evolution of immune reactions.

The last two decades of study enriched greatly our knowledge of how the immune system originated and the sophisticated immune mechanisms of today's vertebrates and invertebrates developed. Even unicellular organisms possess mechanisms for pathogen destruction and self recognition. The ability to distinguish self from non-self is a prerequisite for recognition of sexual compatibility and ensuring survival. Molecules involved in these processes resemble those found in the phagocytic cells of higher organisms. Recognition of bacteria by scavenger receptors induces phagocytosis or endocytosis. The phagocytic mechanisms characterizing the amoeboid protozoans developed further during the evolution towards innate immunity. The scavenger receptor cysteine-rich domain SRCR is encoded in the genomes from the most primitive sponges to mammals. The immune system of sponges comprises signal transduction molecules which occur in higher metazoans as well. Sponges already possess recognition systems for pathogenic bacteria and fungi, based on membrane receptors (a lipopolysaccharide-interacting protein, a cell surface receptor recognizing beta(1 --> 3)-d-glucans of fungi). Perforin-like molecules and lysozymes are involved, among others, in defense in sponges. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species function in the immunity of early metazoan. Genes encoding the family of reactive oxygen-generating NADPH oxidases (Noxes) are found in a variety of protists and plants. The NO synthases of cnidarians, mollusks, and chordates are conserved with respect to the mammalian NOS. The antimicrobial peptides of protozoans, amoebapores, are structural and functional analogs of the natural killer cell peptide, NK-lysin, of vertebrates. An ancestral S-type lectin has been found in sponges. Opsonizing properties of lectins and the ability to agglutinate cells justify their classification as primitive recognition molecules. Invertebrate cytokines are not homologous to those of vertebrate, and their functional convergence was presumably enabled by the general similarity of the lectin-like recognition domain three-dimensional structure. Sponges contain molecules with SCR/CCP domains that show high homology to the mammalian regulators of complement activation (RCA family). A multi-component complement system comprising at least the central molecule of the complement system, C3, Factor B, and MASP developed in the cnidarians and evolved into the multilevel cascade engaged in innate and acquired immunity of vertebrates. The adaptive immune system of mammals is also deeply rooted in the metazoan evolution. Some its precursors have been traced as deep as in sponges, namely, two classes of receptors that comprise Ig-like domains, the receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK), and the non-enzymic sponge adhesion molecules (SAM). The antibody-based immune system defined by the presence of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), T-cell receptor (TCR), B-cell receptor (BCR) or recombination activating genes (RAGs) is known beginning from jawed fishes. However, genes closely resembling RAG1 and RAG2 have been uncovered in the genome of a see urchin. The ancestry of MHC gene remains unknown. Similarly, no homologue of the protein binding domain (PBD) in MHC molecules has been found in invertebrates. The pathway by which endogenous peptides are degraded for presentation with class I MHC molecules utilizes mechanisms similar to those involved in the normal turnover of intracellular proteins, apparently recruited to work also for the immune system. Several cDNAs coding for lysosomal enzymes, e.g., cathepsin, have been isolated from sponges. All chromosomal duplication events in the MHC region occurred after the origin of the agnathans but before the gnathostomes split from them. The V-domains of the subtype found in the receptors of T and B-cells are known from both agnathans and cephalochordates, although they do not rearrange. The rearrangement mechanism of the lymphocyte V-domains suggests its origin from a common ancestral domain existing before the divergence of the extant gnathostome classes. Activation-induced deaminase (AID) - homologous proteins have been found only in the gnathostomes. It appears thus that the adaptive immunity of vertebrates is a result of stepwise accumulation of small changes in molecules, cells and organs over almost half a billion years.  (+info)

How do i increase my immune system and make it stronger and healthier?


I have a weak immune system. I get sick very often and when i do i always get really sick. I try to eat healthy, take vitamins, and exercise but it doesn't seem to do too much. Is there s way i can increase my immune system and make it healthier and stronger? Or any tips on how to be healthier than i already am so that i don't get sick as often?
----------

Unless you have a medical condition your immune system will slowly adapt to flus and colds. When I was 8 I could be down with a flu for a week. A little over a decade later I was bed ridden but for only a few days. Finally now I couldn't really tell for a while if I even had a cold. Concentrate on orange juice and broccoli for your side items. Vitamin C is the obvious thing in OJ but broccoli contains tons of necessary vitamins for the immune system. I pretty much grew up eating it as a side dish.


How can cancer proliferate, if the immune system destroys it from the beginning?


IF the immune system recognizes a cancer cell from the beginning-before it divides greatly-why can't it destroy the cell?

If this is naive, it is because I am just learning on the subject.
----------

Hi Bobby.  Your question is excellent and scientific researchers are studying this issue.  Please note that Gary's answer is NOT scientifically correct.

The immune system, through a process called "Immune Surveillance", does recognize abnormal cells and kill them.  However, for a tumor cell to survive and become a cancer cell, it must "learn" to avoid recognition by the immune system - this is termed "escape" from Immune Surveillance.  So, cancers develop because cancer cells have mutated in a way that allows them to escape from attacks by the immune system.

Here is another key issue involving the immune system and cancer.  If Immune Surveillance works, but the immune response fails to kill all of the cancer cells, the ongoing immune response creates an "inflammatory environment" for the remaining cancer cells - an environnent that DRIVES carcinogenesis.

In summary, the immune system does identify and kill cancer cells,  However, cancer cells can learn to avoid being recognized by the immune system (escape from immune surveillance).  Finally, if the immune system responds to tumor/cancer cells but fails to destroy them, the ongoing immune response creates the ideal inflammatory environment for the growth of cancer cells.

Best wishes and good luck.

Here are links to scientific papers on this subject.

How come the better your immune system the worse your cold symptoms are?


I read in a article if your immune system is strong and healthy then if you get a cold the symptoms will be worse, why is this?

And I want an answer from someone that actually knows, not just someone who wants points!
----------

*Most* viruses that cause common cold symptoms are completely harmless. Your immune system recognizes the virus and viciously goes after it, but in reality, nothing would happen without the immune reaction. The runny nose and coughing is caused by production of mucus to get the virus out of you, and the sore throat is an inflammatory response. None of those symptoms are caused by the virus itself. The stronger your immune system is, the more it will try to go after those viruses and the worse the symptoms will be.


How does the immune system work?


How does the immune system fight off infection? I'm slightly confused about all the steps, if anyone could do help with a step to step information of how it works it would  be much appreciated!! :) thank you!

very complex , and amazing ,  not enough room here to type all the info about the immune system here  ,

Why does the immune system begin to attack a persons newly replaced organ?


When a person receives an organ from another person, his or her immune system often begins to attack the new organ. Why do you think this happens?
----------

the immune system is designed to rid the body of foreign organisms and it treats another persons organs as a foreign object


Does the immune system get weaker when we take to much antibiotics and medicine?


Is it true that over time your immune system will get weaker if you take medicine? 
Does your immune system get stronger without the intake of medicine?
----------

From where I stand:  antibiotics are there to help where the immune system can't fix the problem -- like strep throat, the body doesn't come with an immunity to it so we have to take something for it.  (Granted, if you're like me, you've had it so many times that your body *does* develop a resistance, the antibiotics helped my immune system come up with a solution.)

What breaks down the immune system is not challenging it.  Hand sanitizer is worse for your immune system than medication, because your body's immune system doesn't get a chance to develop an immunity to common viruses.


What are some ways to keep your immune system healthy?


I don't know much about the immune system, and I would like to know some cool facts about it and ways to keep it healthy. Thanks!
Thanks guys! The tips I got were great, and now I know some great ways to keep my immune system healthy. Also, if you know any diseases that affect the IS besides AIDS and autoimmune disease, I would love to know that too. Thanks again!
----------

Without getting too technical with biology etc I'll give you a straight answer.

A healthy immune system is [as you know] directly associated with what foods you eat.
I've had a nasty cold for a little over a week now and I've already been prescribed an antibiotic but I find the main ingredient that helps is fresh fruit that contains a lot of Vitamin C. Doctors have recently discovered VC does nothing for colds but it's more about what it does to your bodies immune system in protecting it from further infection. It may not "Cure" a cold but it certainly helps recovery.
On a more basic scale, as a day-to-day immunity booster i've  usually had drinks such as V8 juice or tomato juice because it provides my body with plenty of vitamins that assist in stamina, energy, alertness and also good skin. It's almost like having a nice shower in the morning but for the inside of your body. Lots of water, fresh fruit, fresh veggies, beef (for iron) and plenty of milk for calcium. It might sound typical but you can't go wrong with the pyramid table of healthy eating. It's all about the right vitamins in keeping your immune system working at it's fullest potential.


How do I increase my immune system and make it stronger and healthier?


How do i increase my immune system and make it stronger and healthier?

I have a weak immune system. I get sick very often and when i do i always get really sick. I try to eat healthy, take vitamins, and exercise but it doesn't seem to do too much. (I am a 21 year old female, 5feet 3inches, 113lbs...if any of that info makes a difference) Is there anyway i can increase my immune system and make it healthier and stronger? Or any tips on how to be healthier than i already am so that i don't get sick as often?
----------

it seems you are on the right track but i suggest you try to research it---how to improve immune system as there are more specific vitamins and natural foods that can help you increase or improve your immune system then just those we take on a daily routine
