Adaptive Immunity: Summary

  • Two-fisted defensive system that uses lymphocytes, APCs, and specific molecules to identify and destroy nonself particles

  • Its response depends upon the ability of its cells to:

    • Recognize foreign substances (antigens) by binding to them

    • Communicate with one another so that the whole system mounts a response specific to those antigens
