  • receptor
  • An antigen binds the highly variable immunoreceptor products ( B-cell receptor or T-cell receptor ) once these have been generated. (wikipedia.org)
  • This occurs because each T cell is endowed with a highly specific receptor that can bind to an antigen present at the surface of another cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • Probably the most studied receptor involved in recognition of induced-self antigens is NKG2D. (wikipedia.org)
  • In its production, there are at least two loci involved, an autosomal gene that generates the antigen and one that generates the receptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • testis
  • This result also identified a gene on the mouse Y chromosome, distinct from the testis-determining gene, that was essential for spermatogenesis, thus raising the possibility that the very product of this "spermatogenesis gene" is the H-Y antigen. (wikipedia.org)
  • transplantation
  • Compatibility of ABH antigens has important impacts on the prognoses of transplants of kidneys, livers and hearts, but less so on marrow, bone or cornea transplantation prognoses. (wikipedia.org)
  • immunity
  • Vaccination and immunity for iGCSE Biology - YouTube Blanchard R, Klassen P H-Y antigen and homosexuality in men - J Theor Biol. (wikipedia.org)
  • serological
  • Other heterophile antigen are responsible for some diagnostic serological test such as Weil felix reaction for typhus fever Paul bunnell test for infectious mononucleosis Cold aglutinin test in Primary atypical pneumonia Composition: chemically these are lipoprotein-polysaccharide complexes, possibly there are identical chemical groupings in the structure of mucopolysaccharids and lipids. (wikipedia.org)
  • hence
  • It has been shown that male mice lacking in the H-Y antigen, hence lacking in the gene producing it, have also lost genetic information responsible for spermatogenesis. (wikipedia.org)
