Transcript of florence and frank flu

part 4:
Your non-specific immunity killed Frank, but not before he managed to infect a cell and replicate. His clones are everywhere and now your specific immunity must take over. List and describe all the components of your specific immunity that will destroy all the Frank Flu clone viruses!

This is where my B and T cells come into play. The B cells use immunoglobulin to grab onto Franks clones in an attempt to get rid of them. they release their antibodies and stimulate the production of more B cells and antibodies. when a T-helper cell sees a frank clone, they will release cytokine which is basically calling for backup ( more B-cells and killer t-cells)
part 4 continued:
the t-cells attack the frank clones using their t-receptors.
part 5:
Now that the invasion is over, what will your immune system do to prepare for future attacks from Frank’s relatives?

once the infection is under control, my body will stop the immune response. my body will now know how to fight frank cells if he ever decides to show up again.
Florence and Frank Flu are waiting patiently on a door knob for their chance at a pickup. As your hand approaches the door knob, they seize the opportunity and latch on to your skin. What will happen to Florence and Frank as they attempt to find an entrance to your body?

As Florence and frank attempt to find an entrance to my body, they would be stopped by my skin. my skin is my first line of defense! its generally impermeable to bacteria and viruses. my skin naturally secretes anti-bacterial enzymes. this means they'll have to try and find another way in!
part 2:
As you enter your kitchen, you snag an orange from the fruit bowl and begin to peel away the skin. When you pop an orange slice in your mouth, Florence Flu slides in too. What chemical barriers will stop her now?

Florence flu has entered my mouth but I don't have to worry yet! he chemical barriers that can stop her is the saliva in my mouth. It contains antibacterial enzymes that can kill microorganisms by breaking down their cell walls.
part 3:
Florence is dead, but Frank Flu has found a way into your body through a tiny cut on your hand. Which non-specific chemical and biological immune responses could destroy Frank Flu before he replicates? Describe exactly how each of these responses could take Frank down!

Now that franks in my body, my non-specific immune responses will automatically target him. once my white blood cells notice him they'll begin their counterattack. the basophils in my bloodstream will release a chemical substance called histamine. Histamines cause inflammation and increased blood flow. This brings neutrophils and monocytes to the site. Neutrophils are attracted by inflammation and infection. Like basophils, they, too, contain granules filled with powerful chemicals that are released when they encounter foreign invaders. They can also gobble up these antigens and kill them before they enter the bloodstream.
