1

Which division of the immune system involves presentation of antigens to T cells?

card image

cellular immunity

2

What is the term for cells that present antigens to T cells?

card image

antigen-presenting cells (APCs)

3

What are the cell surface molecules that present antigens to cells of the immune system?

card image

major histocompatibility complex (MHC)

4

Which class of MCH is the major determinant of “self,” found in all nucleated cells in the human body?

card image

MCH class I (MCH I)

5

Which class of MCH is found on APCs, which engulf and digest pathogens and present peptide antigens?

card image

MCH class II (MCH II)

6

What type of T cells recognize antigens presented by MCH I molecules?

card image

CD8+ (cytotoxic) T cells

7

What type of T cells recognize antigens presented by MCH II molecules?

card image

CD4+ (helper) T cells

8

What type of APCs are found throughout the body in the skin, spleen, liver, thymus, and lymph nodes?

dendritic cells

9

What receptors on dendritic cells recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns?

toll-like receptors (TLRs)

10

What receptors on T lymphocytes recognize antigens bound to MHC I or MHC II on APCs?

card image

T-cell receptor (TCR) complex

11

Which cluster of differentiation functions as a co-receptor for the TCR complex?

card image

CD3

12

Which clusters of differentiation stabilize the interaction of the TCR with the MHC molecules?

CD4 and CD8

13

What is the term for signals outside of the TCR which are required for activation of the T cell during antigen presentation?

co-stimulatory signals

14

What is the consequence of the absence of co-stimulatory signals during T cell activation?

anergy or apoptosis

15

What receptor on cells bind to CD40 on Β cells that are presenting antigen?

CD40L

16

What lymphokine receptor binds IL-2 secreted by activated helper T cells and stimulates T-cell growth?

interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2R)

17

What are the five steps of antigen presentation by MCH I molecules?

card image
  1. ubiquitin targets antigens to the proteasome, where they are digested proteolytically
  2. transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP) transports the peptide fragments to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
  3. in the lumen of the ER, the protein tapasin links TAP with an MHC I
  4. aminopeptidase cleaves the peptide to fit the peptide-binding cleft MHC I
  5. the MHC l-peptide complex is transported to the Golgi apparatus, then exocytosed
18

What cells recognize the MHC l-peptide complex?

CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes

19

Which macrophage receptors recognize the constant region of antibodies?

Fc receptors

20

Which macrophage receptors recognize the complement component that binds to pathogens?

C3b receptors

21

What proteolytic enzymes digest internalized antigens in late endosomes or lysosomes?

cathepsins

22

What are the five steps of antigen presentation by MCH II molecules?

card image
  1. MHC II in the ER is transported to lysosomes containing antigens by invariant chain (Ii), which blocks the MCH II peptide-binding cleft
  2. in the lysosomes, Ii is degraded into class II-associated invariant chain peptide (CLIP)
  3. CLIP is removed by the action of another MHC molecule called HLA-DM
  4. exogenous peptides bind to MHC II and are trimmed by proteases
  5. the MHC lI-peptide complex is transported to the cell surface
23

What cells recognize the MHC Il-peptide complex?

CD4+ helper T lymphocytes

24

What is the T cell activated to produce after it binds to he MHC II-peptide complex (for CD4 cells) or the MHC l-peptide complex (for CD8 cells)?

IL-2 and IL-2R

25

What are the seven steps of CD4 T cell activation after it binds to MHC II-peptide complex?

card image
  1. Lck phosphorylates tyrosine-based activating motifs (ITAMs) on the ζ-chains of the TCR
  2. ZAP-70 binds to the phosphorylated ITAMS and is is phosphorylated by Lck
  3. ZAP-70 phosphorylates linker of activated T cells (LAT)
  4. LAT cleaves inositol bisphosphonate into DAG and inositol triphosphate (IP3)
  5. DAG activates PKC, which phosphorylates ΙκΒ, which enables NF-κΒ to enter the nucleus
  6. IP3 induces release of Ca2+, which activates calmodulin, which enables NFAT to enter the nucleus.
  7. NFAT and NF-κΒ transcriptionally activate several genes to express IL-2
26

What are the three main types of helper T(Th) cells that CD4+ T cells can differentiate into?

card image
  1. Th1
  2. Th2
  3. Th17
27

What is the is the interface between an antigen-presenting cell or target cell and a lymphocyte called?

card image

immunological synapse

28

What is the precursor Th cell called after is it initially activated by the immunological synapse?
