Name for the liver proteins released during acute phase that act as opsonins and enhance the inflammatory response
Acute Phase Proteins
Molecules that attract phagocytes to the site of infection
Cheomtaxins
proteins released by one cell that affect the growth or activity of another
cytokines
proteins that coat pathogens so phagocytes recognize them: antibodies, acute phase proteins, and complement proteins included
Opsonins
Fever inducing substances
Pyrogens
Proteins secreted by B lymphocytes that fight specific invaders
Antibodies, from plasma cells
stimulates pain receptors, vasodilator
bradykinin
plasma and cell membrane proteins that act as opsonins, cytolytic enzymes, and mediators of inflammation
complement
opsonin that activates complement cascade
C-reactive protein
cytotixic enzymes that initiate apoptosis in target cells
granzymes
an anticoagulant
heparin
vasodilator and bronchioconstrictor released by mast cells and basolphils
histamine
proteins that inhibit viral reproduction and modulate the immune response
interferons
macrophage cytokine that mediates the inflammatory response and induces fever
interleukins
inactive plasma protein that activate ina cascade to form bradykinin
kinins
a family of membrane protein complexes used for cell recognition
MHC
a membrane pore protein made in the complement cascade, allows ions and water to enter pathogens
membrane attack complex
a membrane pore protein that allows granzymes in after T- cytotoxic attack
perforin
membrane receptor on T lymphocytes that recognize and bind antigen presented by MHC receptors
T-cell receptor
release chemicals that mediate inflammation and allergic responses
Granulocyte only
Basophil and Mast Cells
ingest and destroy invaders
phagocytes and granulocytes
neutrophils
destroy antibody coated parasite, phagocytes, and granulocytes, cytotoxic
Eosinophils
ingest and destroy invaders, antigen presentation
macrophages
specific responses, antibody production, cytotoxic cells and antigen presenting
lymphocytes
regognize pathogens and activate other immune cells in the lymph nodes, antigen presenting cell
