Name Lymphatic Cells (6)and Tissues(2)
T-Cells "Lymphocytes matures in thyumus"
B-Cells "Originally found in chickens Bursa of Fabricius"
Natural Killer Cells "Immune Surveillance attacks and destroys bactria attacks infected host cells" Macrophages "Comes from
Monocytes (Phagocytic) Main APCs"
Dendrite Cells- APC Found in Epidermus Mucus Membranes & Lymphatic Organs
Reticular Cells- APCs to Thymus
Diffuse Lympahtic Tissue, MALT
There are 6 Cells
and 2 Tissues
Name Lymphatic Organs
Lymph Node, Tonsils, Thalmus, Spleen
There are 4
Functions of Lymph Node
Fluid Recovery- fluid filtered from blood capillaries into tissue space.
Immunity- "Makes Antibodies" lymphatic system recovers excess tissue fluid and picks up foreign cells & chemicles from tissue. On its was back to bloodstream fluid passes through lymph node where immune cells stand guard against foreign matter.
Lipid Absorption-small intestine, lacteals absorb dietary lipids that arnt absorbed by blood capillaries.
There are 3
Lymphatic Vessels
There are 3
Tunica Interna- Endothelium
and Valves
Tunica Media- Smooth Myo &
Elastic Fibers
Tunica Externa- Thin outer
All the "Tunica's"
Definition of Lymph Fluid
Clear and cloroless, contained in lymphatic vessels & lymph nodes. Produced by absorption of tissue fluid, low protein.
