  • Monoclonal Antibodies Research Paper

    2. MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES: 2.1. What are Monoclonal Antibodies? 2.1.1. “Clones” A clone is a group (family) of cells which come from a single parent cell that divides various times and are identical in all ways. In their structure, metabolic characteristics, functions, etc. 2.1.2. “Antibodies” An antibody is a protein which is produced by the human body’s immune system when it detects a substance that may be harmful (antigens like: bacteria, viruses, chemicals, parasites, etc). Antibodies are sometimes produced when the immune system mistakenly considers a healthy tissue, as a dangerous one, and creates antibodies against it. This is called an “autoimmune disorder”. [8] 2.1.3. “Antigens” An antigen can be any foreign substance capable…

  • What Is The Functional Relationship Between Albert And Alice

    chosen to be one of the experiment to demonstrate the relationship between Alice and Albert, because of following features, flexibility, inexpensive reagent, long shelf lives, minimal radiation exposure, easy to manipulate, and produces accurate results. The functional link between Immunoglobulin G and antibodies to Pneumococcal Polysaccharides using ELISA techniques are clearly pinpoint in Barrett et al’s (1980) research paper. The authors also uses numbers of parameters while performing the…

  • Human Immune System

    According to Goronzy JJ, Weyand CM (2007, chapter 42), “They include fatigue, fever and General ill-feeling . Tests that may be done to diagnose an autoimmune disorder may include Anti-nuclear antibody tests.” The test measures the levels of blood antibodies that work against the individuals. The antinuclear antibodies (ANA) test can help recognized compromise in the body such as Rheumatoid arthritis. Another important auto immune disorder test is C-reactive protein (crp). This test recognizes…

  • Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquista Case Studies

    through mice injections that the sole binding of the antibody did not create skin blistering or deformity. Several other cellular components are needed to produce the EBA phenotype, which include: neutrophils, Fc factors, and complement activation (Ludwig, 2012). EBA pathogenesis and autoantibody- induced cellular damage can be understood as: (i) binding of autoantibody to antigen, (ii) Fc- factors of blister production, and (iii) the diapedesis of neutrophils (Ludwig, 2012). Anti-COL7 Antibody…

  • Adaptive Immune Response

    differentiate and secrete many antibodies with the same specificity for the original antigen. B cells express specific antigen receptors (immunoglobulin molecules) on their cell surface during their development and, when mature in the bone marrow, secrete soluble immunoglobulins (antibodies) into the extracellular fluids. Each B cell is genetically programmed to express a surface receptor…

    infectious organism. The lymphocytes are the white blood cells are focused on allowing the body to remember the infectious organisms and also help eliminate them. There are also two different types of lymphocytes, B and T cells. The T cells are attach to the invader and multiply and attempt to destroy it, when it is in the cell. The B cells produce an antibody which are released into surrounding cells in order to eliminate the invader (McLeod, 2010). Lymphocytes, no matter the type, all start…

  • Severe Diseases In The Human Body

    Severe diseases in the human body have been causes due to pollution within the foods and liquids we consume on a day-to-day basis. The human body consists of many factors that help us fight against infection such as white blood cells, organs, tissues, or other cell substances. These factors that defend our body from millions of infection, bacteria, microbes, parasites, toxins, or viruses are all parts of what we call the immune system. So how does the immune system work you may ask? In simple…

  • Elisa Research Paper

    ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) ELISA is a technique to detect and quantify substances like proteins, antibodies, and hormones. The target antigen is immobilized to the bottom of the well and then an antigen-specific detection antibody is added. The detection antibody makes it possible to measure results. The three most common formats of ELISA would be direct assay, indirect assay, and sandwich assay. In direct assay, the antigen immobilizes to the bottom of the well where a labeled…
