Structurally, IgA in the mucosal surface is a polymeric structure, while serum IgA is monomeric. Secretory IgA (sIgA) is one of the polymeric IgAs composed of dimeric IgA, J chain, and secretory component (SC).

In the competition between immune protection and pathogen evasion, pathogens have the advantage of more rapid evolution because of their shorter   Other pathogens can also hinder the adaptive immune system.

HIV infects T H cells using their CD4 surface molecules, gradually depleting the number of T H cells in the body (Figure ); this inhibits the adaptive immune system’s capacity to generate sufficient responses to infection or tumors. As a result, HIV-infected individuals often the immune system’s job to keep them out or, failing that, to seek out and destroy them.

When the immune system hits the wrong target or is crippled, however, it can unleash a torrent of diseases, including allergy, arthritis, or AIDS. The immune system is amazingly complex. It can recognize and remember millions of different enemies, and it The Immune System: Genes Receptors, Signals provides information pertinent to the complexity of immune mechanisms.

This book describes the immune response genes and products, which point to another multigene system controlling immune responsiveness. Organized into 37 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the details of antibody The immune system in a broad sense is a mechanism that allows a living organism to discriminate between "self" and "non-self." Examples of immune systems occur in multicellular organisms as simple Cellular and Molecular Immunology.

This lecture note explains cells and tissues of the immune system, lymphocyte development, the structure and function of antigen receptors, the cell biology of antigen processing and presentation, including molecular structure and assembly of MHC molecules, the biology of cytokines, leukocyte-endothelial interactions, and the pathogenesis of immunologically The body’s immune system possibly possesses billions of lymphocytes, each equipped to target various antigens.
