Protection from an infectious disease agent that is mediated by B- and T- LYMPHOCYTES following exposure to specific antigen, and characterized by IMMUNOLOGIC MEMORY. It can result from either previous infection with that agent or vaccination (IMMUNITY, ACTIVE), or transfer of antibody or lymphocytes from an immune donor (IMMUNIZATION, PASSIVE).

Specialized cells of the hematopoietic system that have branch-like extensions. They are found throughout the lymphatic system, and in non-lymphoid tissues such as SKIN and the epithelia of the intestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts. They trap and process ANTIGENS, and present them to T-CELLS, thereby stimulating CELL-MEDIATED IMMUNITY. They are different from the non-hematopoietic FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS, which have a similar morphology and immune system function, but with respect to humoral immunity (ANTIBODY PRODUCTION).

They are formed when lymphocytes circulate through the THYMUS GLAND and differentiate to thymocytes. When exposed to an antigen, they divide rapidly and produce large numbers of new T cells sensitized to that antigen.
Nonsusceptibility to the pathogenic effects of foreign microorganisms or antigenic substances as a result of antibody secretions of the mucous membranes.

Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.

Epidemic enhancement in partially immune populations. (1/1427)

We observe that a pathogen introduced into a population containing individuals with acquired immunity can result in an epidemic longer in duration and/or larger in size than if the pathogen were introduced into a naive population. We call this phenomenon "epidemic enhancement," and use simple dynamical models to show that it is a realistic scenario within the parameter ranges of many common infectious diseases. This finding implies that repeated pathogen introduction or intermediate levels of vaccine coverage can lead to pathogen persistence in populations where extinction would otherwise be expected.  (+info)

Therapeutic use of Aldara in chronic myeloid leukemia. (2/1427)

The potent clinical responses seen in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) after administration of donor-specific lymphocytes, as well as the correlation between the presence of antigen specific T cells and prolonged remission in these patients, suggests a role for the immunological control of CML. Here we propose Aldara, a clinically used formulation of imiquimod, as an agent for augmenting immune responses to CML antigens. Our proposition is based upon 3 tenets: 1) Endogenous dendritic cells (DC) of CML patients, which are known to be derived from the malignant clone, express and present various leukemic antigens; 2) CML-antigen reactive T cell clones exist in the patient but in many situations are ineffectively stimulated to cause significant hematological responses; and 3) Antigen presentation by mature, activated DC, which endogenously express CML-antigens may endow the pre-existing ineffective T cell responses with ability to control CML progression. The practical use of Aldara as a localized activator of DC in the context of present day leukemic therapeutics, as well as various properties of this unique immune modulator will be discussed.  (+info)

Immune-mediated changes in actinic keratosis following topical treatment with imiquimod 5% cream. (3/1427)

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to identify the molecular processes responsible for the anti-lesional activity of imiquimod in subjects with actinic keratosis using global gene expression profiling. METHODS: A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study was conducted to evaluate gene expression changes in actinic keratosis treated with imiquimod 5% cream. Male subjects (N = 17) with > or = 5 actinic keratosis on the scalp applied placebo cream or imiquimod 3 times a week on nonconsecutive days for 4 weeks. To elucidate the molecular processes involved in actinic keratosis lesion regression by imiquimod, gene expression analysis using oligonucleotide arrays and real time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction were performed on shave biopsies of lesions taken before and after treatment. RESULTS: Imiquimod modulated the expression of a large number of genes important in both the innate and adaptive immune response, including increased expression of interferon-inducible genes with known antiviral, anti-proliferative and immune modulatory activity, as well as various Toll-like receptors. In addition, imiquimod increased the expression of genes associated with activation of macrophages, dendritic cells, cytotoxic T cells, and natural killer cells, as well as activation of apoptotic pathways. CONCLUSION: Data suggest that topical application of imiquimod stimulates cells in the skin to secrete cytokines and chemokines that lead to inflammatory cell influx into the lesions and subsequent apoptotic and immune cell-mediated destruction of lesions.  (+info)

The identification of lymphocyte-like cells and lymphoid-related genes in amphioxus indicates the twilight for the emergence of adaptive immune system. (4/1427)

To seek evidence of a primitive adaptive immune system (AIS) before vertebrate, we examined whether lymphocytes or lymphocyte-like cells and the related molecules participating in the lymphocyte function existed in amphioxus. Anatomical analysis by electron microscopy revealed the presence of lymphocyte-like cells in gills, and these cells underwent morphological changes in response to microbial pathogens that are reminiscent of those of mammalian lymphocytes executing immune response to microbial challenge. In addition, a systematic comparative analysis of our cDNA database of amphioxus identified a large number of genes whose vertebrate counterparts are involved in lymphocyte function. Among these genes, several genes were found to be expressed in the vicinity of the lymphocyte-like cells by in situ hybridization and up-regulated after exposure to microbial pathogens. Our findings in the amphioxus indicate the twilight for the emergence of AIS before the invertebrate-vertebrate transition during evolution.  (+info)

Computational investigations into the origins of short-term biochemical memory in T cell activation. (5/1427)

Recent studies have reported that T cells can integrate signals between interrupted encounters with Antigen Presenting Cells (APCs) in such a way that the process of signal integration exhibits a form of memory. Here, we carry out a computational study using a simple mathematical model of T cell activation to investigate the ramifications of interrupted T cell-APC contacts on signal integration. We consider several mechanisms of how signal integration at these time scales may be achieved and conclude that feedback control of immediate early gene products (IEGs) appears to be a highly plausible mechanism that allows for effective signal integration and cytokine production from multiple exposures to APCs. Analysis of these computer simulations provides an experimental roadmap involving several testable predictions.  (+info)

The fate of adaptive T cell immunity is determined by multiple cellular and molecular factors, among which the cytokine milieu plays the most important role in this process. Depending on the cytokines present during the initial T cell activation, T cells become effector cells that produce different effector molecules and execute adaptive immune functions. Studies thus far have primarily focused on defining how these factors control T cell differentiation by targeting T cells themselves. However, other non-T cells, particularly APCs, also express receptors for the factors and are capable of responding to them. In this review, we will discuss how APCs, by responding to those cytokines, influence T cell differentiation and adaptive immunity.
In this analyze, we evaluated the impartial impression of microbial translocation and pro-swelling on innate and adaptive immune responses. Apparently, we identified an inverse relation among baseline serum LPS and subsequent adaptive immune response in HAART-naive people. purchase 163769-88-8This association was not observed amongst HAART-addressed subjects. We also located the release of professional-inflammatory cytokines soon after LPS stimulation was enhanced in PBMCs from viremic HAART-naive topics as opposed to HAART-handled subjects, as nicely as in PBMCs from wholesome controls pre-handled with HIV-one-derived RNA, and very similar conclusions have been demonstrated in prior scientific studies [twenty,27]. More, the TNF-a response depended a lot more on increasing HIV RNA levels than on adjustments in LPS stage. Hence, LPS may act in synergy with HIV RNA and cause a disruption of adaptive immune functions by inappropriate immune diversion. Anti-Gal immunoglobulins are potential novel ...

Antigen-experienced immune cells migrate back to the bone marrow (BM), where they are maintained in BM survival niches for an extended period. The composition of T cell subpopulations in the BM changes with age, leading to an accumulation of highly differentiated T cells and a loss of naïve T cells. While innate immune cells are also affected by age, little is known about interactions between different adaptive immune cell populations maintained in the BM. In this study, the phenotype and function of innate and adaptive immune cells isolated from human BM and peripheral blood (PB) was analysed in detail using flow cytometry, to determine if the accumulation of highly differentiated T and B cells, supported by the BM niches, limits the maintenance of other immune cells, or affects their functions such as providing protective antibody concentrations. Total T cells increase in the BM with age, as do highly differentiated CD8+ T cells which no longer express the co-stimulatory molecule CD28, while natural

Adaptive immunity is governed by the response of immune cells (T-cells and B-cells) to specific antigens. T-cells and B-cells encounter antigens via Antigen Presenting Cells or APCs in the lymph nodes. B-cells, which control long term immunity are activated by binding to APCs and additional signaling from helper T-cells. Killer T-cells, which actively seek out infected cells, require binding to an epitope on an expressed antigen, as well as costimulation via other receptors on the APC. Manipulating these two-signal pathways is key to modulating immune response (3) There are three main characteristics of biomaterials to consider when attempting to engineer immune responses: Epitope content, size, and multivalency. [2] Adaptive immune responses are controlled by the presence of antigen binding sites or epitopes. These epitopes are sequences of amino acids on an antigen recognized by T-cell or B-cell receptors. These epitopes are presented via two different pathways. Extracellular antigens are ...
A combination of the above functions means that dendritic cells link innate and adaptive immune responses.

The importance of the crosstalk between innate immunity and the adaptive immune response has only recently started to be appreciated. Although it is well recognized that dendritic cells, NK cells, NK-T cells and T cells are all critical for the host response to pathogens, the respective fields that study the biology of these immune cells tend to exist in parallel worlds with minimum exchange of information and ideas. This fragmentation hinders the integration of these fields towards a unified theory of host response. The Aegean Conference: Crossroads between Innate and Adaptive Immunity will bring together leading international scientists and experts to address critical areas of Innate and Adaptive immunity something necessary for the development of more efficient scientific exchange and crosspollination between these fields. The purpose of this conference will be to bring together scientists from all over the world to discuss their latest findings on the various aspects of Innate and ...
Anecdotal literature has shown that severe combined immunodeficiency is defect in the immune system characterized by loss of the adaptive immune cells known as B cells and T cells.
Emerging evidence suggests that cytokines produced by inflammatory cells act as rheostats to link the degree of wounding and local inflammation to epithelial cell survival, proliferation, and metabolism that collectively underpin the repair response. Among these cytokines, the GP130 family, which encompasses, among others, IL6 and IL11, plays a major role in orchestrating these complex processes through the activation of the latent signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) in the epithelium. However, many of the molecular mechanisms that govern and ensure effective epithelial wound healing and regeneration renewal also promote tumorigenesis and the progression of established cancers. Accordingly, GP130 cytokines endow the inflammatory tumor microenvironment with a capacity to promote cancer hallmark capabilities of the malignant epithelium, while simultaneously suppressing the antitumor response of innate and adaptive immune cells. Here, we review some recent insights derived ...
Teshager Dubie*, Tesfaye Sisay, Fikre Zeru, Mu-uz Gebru and Wossene Negash. ABSTRACT. Tuberculosis is a major health problem throughout the world causing large number of deaths both in humans and animals, more than that from any other single infectious disease. It is a highly successful intracellular pathogen that has developed strategies to survive even in the presence of high immune pressure. The usual site of entry into the human body is through the airways, beginning with the inhalation of infected droplets expelled from another infected individual through coughing. Although being caused by a quite simple microorganism, TB is a multifaceted disease with a spectrum of antimicrobial effector pathways at play during different stages of infection, ranging from early innate to late adaptive immune responses during acute and chronic infection. Even though both innate and adaptive immunity are coordinated to protect the body from this infection and disease development, Cell mediated adaptive ...

Adaptive immunity licenses higher organisms to generate potent immune responses against foreign antigens. Two hallmarks of adaptive immunity are A) the ability of T and B cells to distinguish self from non-self and B) the ability to mount a qualitatively and quantitatively superior immune response upon secondary exposure to antigens. Due to the essential role of adaptive immunity in human disease, the soluble factors mediating the basic biology of cells within the adaptive immune system are of great importance. The gut is an anatomical situation where immune responses are chronically suppressed and the mechanism of how this occurs remains unknown. The studies presented demonstrate that all- trans retinoic acid, a factor found in great abundance in the gut, greatly enhances the induction of a suppressive population of cells called adaptive T regulatory cells. All- trans retinoic acid is thus a newly identified differentiation factor for T regulatory cells. These data implicates all- trans ...
The mechanisms triggering renal inflammation in chronic kidney disease (CKD) are unclear. We performed a detailed analysis of the time course of innate and adaptive immunity activation in the 5/6 renal ablation (Nx) model. Munich-Wistar rats undergoing Nx were studied 15, 60 and 120 days after ablation. Hypertension, albuminuria, creatinine retention, interstitial expansion and infiltration by macrophages and T-lymphocytes were already evident 15 days after Nx. PCR-array was used to screen for altered gene expression, whereas gene and protein expressions of TLR4, CASP1, IL-1 beta and NLRP3 were individually assessed. Tlr4, Tlr5, Lbp, Nlrp3, Casp1, Irf7 and Il1b were already upregulated 15 days after Nx, while activation of Tlr2, Tlr7, Tlr9, Nod2, Tnf and Il6 was seen after 60 days post-ablation. The number of genes related to innate or adaptive immunity grew steadily with time. These observations indicate that parallel activation of innate and adaptive immunity antecedes glomerular injury and ...
Decline in immune function is a hallmark of aging, leading to increased susceptibility of elderly individuals to bacterial infections of lungs, urinary tract, skin and soft tissues and reactivation of inactive tuberculosis and herpes zoster (reviewed in Refs. 1 and 2). There is an increased severity of pneumococcal, influenza, and respiratory syncytial viral infections in the elderly population (3, 4, 5, 6). For example, an estimated 90% of the 20,000 deaths that are attributed to influenza annually in the U.S. occur in persons aged ≥65 years (7). Age-related changes in the adaptive immune system are well-documented and include diminished and/or altered cytokine patterns, reduction in clonal expansion and function of Ag-specific T and B cells and a decline in Ag-presenting cell function (1, 2, 8, 9). The decline in adaptive immune function leads to decreased efficacy of preventive vaccination in the elderly. In the case of influenza, although the vaccine is ∼70-90% effective in preventing ...
Its always a good time to think about how your immune system works and how you can help support it. The immune system is multi-layered and works around the clock to support our health so we can go about our everyday lives. All those layers can be broken down into three main lines of defense: the physiological, or physical, barriers, innate immunity and adaptive immunity, also known as humoral immunity. Lets look at it another way. The physiological barriers, like your skin, tears, mucous membranes and your gut, are your bodys natural shields trying to protect you from the outside environment. When needed, your innate immunity kicks in like a quick response team, activating your bodys white blood cells and other mechanisms. What is adaptive immunity? The final layer of defense is your adaptive, or humoral, immunity. We like to think of them as your own personal superheroes. Their job is to focus your immune systems response. They are the smartest members of your defense system because they ...
The NIAID Lymphocyte Biology Section studies basic aspects of innate and adaptive immune function, with an emphasis on the biochemical mechanisms involved in discrimination between self and foreign peptide-associated MHC molecules by T-cells as well as on T-cell antigen-presenting cell interactions and the subsequent delivery of effector function.
Exosomes are small extracellular vesicles (EVs) secreted by many cell types in both normal and pathogenic circumstances. Because EVs, particularly exosomes, are known to transfer biologically active proteins, RNAs and lipids between cells, they have recently become the focus of intense interest as potential mediators of cell-cell communication, particularly in long-range and juxtacrine signaling events associated with adaptive immune function and progression of cancer. Among the EVs, exosomes appear particularly adapted for long-range delivery of cargoes between cells. Because of their association with disease states, the exciting potential for exosomes to serve as diagnostic biomarkers and as target-specific biomolecule delivery vehicles has stimulated a broad range of biomedical investigations to learn how exosomes are generated, what their cargoes are, and how they might be tailored for uptake by remote targets. Addressing these questions requires experimental models in which biochemically ...
The adaptive immune cells (B and T) cells develop normal responses only if they are stimulated by exposure to foreign substances…Children get primed with IgG antibodies from their mother and IgA antibodies from breast milk which provide passive immunity for the first two years of life. After that, children need to begin activating their own adaptive immunity - their own IgMs and IgGs….If this process of educating the adaptive immune system is not sufficiently activated in early childhood, the immune system of the adolescent or adult remains underdeveloped. Then the response to foreign bodies relies more on the emergency system, using IgE antibodies instead of IgG, IgA, or IgM antibodies. It is these IgE antibodies that tend to overreact, causing allergies. Essentially, an under-trained adaptive immune system, such as that of someone raised in a sterile environment, is more prone to confuse harmless foreign bodies like pollen, dog hair, peanuts, eggs, or insect venom, for parasites. ...
Despite ongoing research, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is still the 3rd leading cause of death worldwide. In Turkey, the average prevalence is 19.2% and increases with age. Currently, there is no therapy for COPD, with all treatment only able to alleviate symptoms. Clinically, COPD is characterized by progressive and largely irreversible airflow limitation resulting from long-term exposure to toxic gases and particles, in particular cigarette smoke. This drives excess mucus production, small airway remodeling, chronic bronchitis and emphysema. The progression and severity of COPD are associated with increasing infiltration of the airways and parenchyma by innate and adaptive immune cells with a predominance of B and T cells, and in more severe disease, the presence of lymphoid follicles. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying how innate and adaptive immune cells contribute to disease pathogenesis, however, have remained unclear. Here, we will discuss the roles of ...

Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2) are innate immune cells that respond rapidly to their environment through soluble inflammatory mediators and cell-to-cell interactions. As tissue-resident sentinels, ILC2 help orchestrate localized type 2 immune responses. These ILC2-driven type 2 responses are now recognized in diverse immune processes, different anatomical locations, and homeostatic or pathological settings. ILC2-derived cytokines and cell surface signaling molecules function as key regulators of innate and adaptive immunity. Conversely, ILC2 are governed by their environment. As such, ILC2 form an important nexus of the immune system and may present an attractive target for immune modulation in disease. ...

When we try and reach the best coverage of the immunological repertoire, we actually aim to sequence as many immunoglobulin sequences as possible, out of the whole repertoire. That is, we aim to maximize the ratio between sequenced immunoglobulins (SI) to the total number of immunoglobulins (TI) in. the organism. We aim to reach an SI : TI ratio of 1. When this SI : TI ratio has been reached, an account for the entire repertoire can be obtained. Dorsomorphin solubility dmso Smaller model organisms, therefore, provide a better starting point from which to reach this ratio. Smaller organisms contain significantly fewer cells in total and, obviously, fewer immune cells. Much smaller organisms (e.g. the round worm) are sufficient for some aspects of immunology (see refs 31,32) but not for studying the lymphocyte repertoire. Zebrafish, Danio rario, are an ideal model system for studying the adaptive immune system for two reasons: first, they have the earliest recognizable adaptive immune system whose ...

The adaptive immune system, also known as the acquired immune system or, more rarely, as the specific immune system, is a subsystem of the overall immune system that is composed of highly specialized, systemic cells and processes that eliminate pathogens or prevent their growth. The adaptive immune system is one of the two main immunity strategies found in vertebrates (the other being the innate immune system). Adaptive immunity creates immunological memory after an initial response to a specific pathogen, and leads to an enhanced response to subsequent encounters with that pathogen. This process of acquired immunity is the basis of vaccination. Like the innate system, the adaptive system includes both humoral immunity components and cell-mediated immunity components. Unlike the innate immune system, the adaptive immune system is highly specific to a particular pathogen. Adaptive immunity can also provide long-lasting protection; for example, someone who recovers from measles is now protected ...
Effective innate and adaptive immune responses are essential for the control of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Indeed, elimination of HCV during acute infection correlates with an early induction of innate and a delayed induction of adaptive immune responses. However, in the majority of acutely …
The innate immune system initially recognizes pathogens via both the complement system and pattern recognition receptors. The complement system, also part of humoral immunity, is a family of proteins that recognize and bind pathogens, marking them for phagocytosis. Pattern recognition receptors include 3 families of receptors (toll-like, NOD-like, and RIG-I-like), each of which initiate the type I interferon response upon activation by specific pathogen classes. This interferon response activates adaptive immunity, a major part of cell-mediated immunity including B cells and T cells. The conclusion of adaptive immunity results in memory T cells, which express receptors for antigens, and memory B cells, which produce antibodies to recognize pathogens. These cells allow the adaptive immune system to mount a stronger response upon the next exposure to the pathogen. Innate and adaptive immunity were originally thought to be two separate arms of the immune system. However, recent studies show ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Alcohol and Smoking Mediated Modulations in Adaptive Immunity in Pancreatitis. AU - Bhatia, Rakesh. AU - Thompson, Christopher. AU - Ganguly, Koelina. AU - Singh, Shailender. AU - Batra, Surinder K.. AU - Kumar, Sushil. PY - 2020/8/11. Y1 - 2020/8/11. N2 - Pancreatitis is a condition of pancreatic inflammation driven by injury to the pancreatic parenchyma. The extent of acinar insult, intensity, and type of immune response determines the severity of the disease. Smoking, alcohol and autoimmune pancreatitis are some of the predominant risk factors that increase the risk of pancreatitis by differentially influencing the adaptive immune system. The overall decrease in peripheral lymphocyte (T-, B- and (natural killer T-) NKT-cell) count and increased infiltration into the damaged pancreatic tissue highlight the contribution of adaptive immunity in the disease pathology. Smoking and alcohol modulate the responsiveness and apoptosis of T- and B-cells during pancreatic insult. Acute ...
1 Functions of the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. Innate Immune Cells Adaptive Immune Cells Immune recognition Immune effector mechanisms Immune regulation Immunological memory response - particularly the adaptive arm of the immune response - occurs in the secondary lymphoid organs draining the site of infection. The immune system has evolved a number of effector mechanisms capable of destroying pathogenic organisms. 1). The innate arm of the immune system recognises pathogens non-specifically and generates immediate generic mechanisms of pathogen clearance. Many cytokine receptors are dimeric, and the chains making up some of the cytokine receptors are promiscuous. For example, the common ␥ chain (CD132) is shared by a number of cytokine receptors (notably the receptors for interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15 and IL-21), and the IL-4R chain (IL-4R␣) pairs with IL-␣13R to convey signals in response to IL-13. 8 Adaptive immunity The adaptive immune response differs ...
Vaccines are currently the most successful prophylactic intervention against many infectious diseases. Subunit vaccines are a promising strategy for the development of novel effective vaccines, however, protein subunits are poorly immunogenic alone. Successful subunit vaccines require formulation with adjuvant compounds in order to stimulate cells of the innate immune system and generate protective adaptive immune responses. The development of vaccine adjuvants is critical for subunit vaccine development, but requires improved high throughput screening methods that reliably predict in vivo immune responses. Pattern recognition receptor (PRR) agonists are a growing class of potential vaccine adjuvants that are able to shape both the scale and character of the immune response to subunit vaccines through the direction of CD4 T cell polarization. We have applied a high-throughput in vitro assay to assess the CD4 T cell polarization potential of a panel of PRR agonists. Using this system, we ...
Host-symbiont associations are widespread in nature and exhibit a variety of interactions ranging from parasitism to mutualism. Insects living on nutritionally unbalanced diets are prone to establish long-term mutualistic relationships with vertically transmitted intracellular bacteria (endosymbionts) that complement their diet, improve their metabolism and reproduction, and impact many host adaptive traits, including immunity and defense against pathogens [1-7]. While the metabolic, ecological and evolutionary features of these interactions have been well described [8-10], the mechanisms allowing the persistence of such associations remain largely unexplored. Beneficial bacteria are essential for the associations survival but represent a constant immune challenge for the host. Insect immunity must preserve endosymbionts and control their load and location while being able to cope with potential environmental infections by microbial intruders. This dilemma is more puzzling considering that both ...
After more than 30 years of active research on HIV/AIDS, many challenging questions remain unanswered. For example, some individuals progress to AIDS within a year after HIV acquisition, whereas others never develop the disease. Host genetic factors play a role in disease progression, but the precise pathways are still unknown. Studies aimed at deciphering this are hampered by interindividual variability and the high propensity of HIV to mutate: as a consequence, the host-virus interactions can vary significantly between different infected people. How innate and adaptive immune mechanisms slow HIV replication is still ill defined and differs substantially among different ethnic groups. As most studies to date have focused on patients of European ancestry, it has become a global health priority to determine how HIV control is achieved in nonwhites (27). In the current study, we assessed the protective effect of −35 SNP in Han Chinese subjects who were infected in a short time frame by a very ...
Well, you should remember that macrophage is not typical innate immunity cell. It also acts as APC for activating adaptive immunity. The time when innate immunity is about to stop and adaptive immunity is about to begin is called induced immunity, which dendritic cells and macrophage switch their function from antigen-eating to become antigen-presenting. In adaptive immunity, macrophage does not engulf antigen by phagolysosome mechanism (eating function) anymore like it use to do in innate immunity, it engulf antigen to be processed as peptide and will bring it back to its surface to be presented with MHC (APC function ...
Immune response plays a fundamental role in protecting the organism from infections; however, dysregulation often occurs and can be detrimental for the organism, leading to a variety of immune-mediated diseases. Recently our understanding of the molecular and cellular networks regulating the immune response, and, in particular, adaptive immunity, has improved dramatically. For many years, much of the focus has been on the study of protein regulators; nevertheless, recent evidence points to a fundamental role for specific classes of noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) in regulating development, activation and homeostasis of the immune system. Although microRNAs (miRNAs) are the most comprehensive and well-studied, a number of reports suggest the exciting possibility that long ncRNAs (lncRNAs) could mediate host response and immune function. Finally, evidence is also accumulating that suggests a role for miRNAs and other small ncRNAs in autocrine, paracrine and exocrine signaling events, thus highlighting an
cDCs link innate and adaptive immunity by sensing pathogens and initiating adaptive immune responses. Although the two physiological functions of cDCs are likely to play distinct roles in immune homeostasis, they have not previously been evaluated independently. In the gut, cDCs sense and capture gut microbes in part by extending their processes into the gut lumen (Macpherson and Uhr, 2004; Niess et al., 2005; Chieppa et al., 2006; Vallon-Eberhard et al., 2006). Microbial sensing induces cDCs to produce cytokines such as IL-23, which are required to activate innate lymphoid cells (Kinnebrew et al., 2012; Satpathy et al., 2013). In addition, the ingested microbes are carried to local lymphoid organs, such as the mLNs, processed, and presented to T cells to initiate adaptive immune responses (Macpherson and Uhr, 2004; Niess et al., 2005).. Ablation experiments using CD11cDTR mice, conditional deletion of genes (e.g., Irf4, Irf8, or Notch2) with CD11cCre mice, and Batf3-deficient mice result in ...
When something foreign enters your body like the bacteria that causes strep throat or the influenza (flu) virus, the innate immune system recognizes the foreign invasion. Generally speaking, the part it recognizes is called an antigen, and this is the signal that tells your immune system army to fight and protect you. Antigens are specific to each pathogen; for example, the measles-causing rubeola virus has different antigens than flu viruses. After recognizing an invader, the innate immune system quickly organizes and begins the fight to keep the pathogen from spreading throughout your body and making you sick. Sometimes, it can do this all on its own, but other times it needs back up from the adaptive immune system. Therefore, it will carry the antigen to where your adaptive immune system lives (usually in your lymph nodes) and present it to the cell soldiers, encouraging them to rise up and fight too. It takes your adaptive immune system a few days to get organized, but once it does, it ...
Typically, scientists divide the immune system into two categories: the innate immune response and the adaptive immune response. The adaptive immune response is familiar to most people because of its role in providing long-term protection against disease, as when a vaccine triggers the immune system to remember a specific threat and mount a robust response if challenged by that pathogen later in life.. The innate immune system is older in evolutionary terms and usually thought of as responding to immediate threats from pathogens or other foreign entities. But over the past few years, informed by studies in plants and invertebrates, scientists have begun to suspect that the innate response has a form of memory as well, complicating the division of the immune system into two neat categories. The innate immune system is typically thought of as a quick, generally non-specific broad response to an initial infection that lacks immunological memory, says Cramer. But studies of trained immunity ...
Our immune system is the collective defense system against disease that classically works to identify foreign microorganisms and protect the body from these invaders. It includes both biological structures and processes. The immune processes can be broken down to two main types of immunity that work together to keep us healthy: innate immunity and adaptive immunity. The innate immune system is comprised of biological immune responses that were genetically passed down from your parents and present since birth, whereas the adaptive immune system refers to responses that the body has learned and developed from exposure to foreign proteins. ...
The immune system of mammalians is organized around two components: the innate immunity and the adaptive immunity. Older in terms of evolution, the innate immune system constitutes the first line of defense against microorganisms. This system is supplemented by the adaptive immunity, which is more recent in terms of evolution and provides the basis of immunological memory. Both the adaptive and innate immune systems are composed of a cellular and a humoral arm acting in a complementary and coordinated manner to regulate the innate response.
Abstract: In this paper, we consider the adaptive Eulerian--Lagrangian method (ELM) for linear convection-diffusion problems. Unlike the classical a posteriori error estimations, we estimate the temporal error along the characteristics and derive a new a posteriori error bound for ELM semi-discretization. With the help of this proposed error bound, we are able to show the optimal convergence rate of ELM for solutions with minimal regularity. Furthermore, by combining this error bound with a standard residual-type estimator for the spatial error, we obtain a posteriori error estimators for a fully discrete scheme. We present numerical tests to demonstrate the efficiency and robustness of our adaptive algorithm ...
Many remarkable advances have improved our understanding of the cellular and molecular events in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Chief among these is the accumulating knowledge of how the immune system contributes to all phases of atherogenesis, including well-known inflammatory reactions consequent to intimal trapping and oxidation of LDL. Advances in our understanding of the innate and adaptive responses to these events have helped to clarify the role of inflammation in atherogenesis and suggested new diagnostic modalities and novel therapeutic targets. Here we focus on recent advances in understanding how adaptive immunity affects atherogenesis.. ...
