What does the immune sysytem do?
It protects the body from germs and destroys germs if they enter.
What are they componoents of the Immune Sysytem?
The components of the immune sysytem are phagocytes, B&T lymphocytes, anitbodies, and antigens
What is phagocytes role in the immmune system?
Phagocytes destroy anitgens by eating them.
What is the lymphocytes role in the immune system?
The B cells destroy the antigens with antibodies and remeber the anitgens so immunity can be produced faster the second time around. T celss destroy the anitgens and tel other cels what to do.
What is the role of the antibodies in the immune sysytem?
Anitbodies attach to antigens so the T cells know to destroy those celss. There is only one kind of antibody for each anitgen there by indentifying it.
Whta is the purpose of an antigen in the imunne system?
Antigens are germs.
What are the two kinds of immunity?
The The two kinds of immunity are innate, immunity people are born with, and adaptive immunity that ocuurs when we are exposed to antigens.
What sysytems are related to the immune sysytem?
Related systems are the "circulatory, respiratory, nervous and integumentary systems."
What is the role of the endocrine sysytem?
The endocrine sysytem regulates horomones.

What is the role of the alveoli?
The alveoli are located in the lungs and change the gases. Humans have around 600.
What are the related systems?
The related sysytems are the circulatory system, nervous system, endocrine, and immune systems.
What is the role of the circulatory system?
The circulatory system sends things throught the body.
What are the components of the circulatory system?
The components of the circulatory system and blod heart, and blodd vessels.
What do arteries do?
