LOL

No secreted or polymeric Ig there, though... And it is not taught in the Immunology curriculum.

Yes, but since some of the threat to bacteria comes in phage form, REs work well for chopping up strange DNA "somehow" (go figure) gets injected into the cytosol. Sure no Igs or anything, but it functions as a rudimentary immune system....sorta....

Yeah, I understand that. But very rudimentary. And as I said not taught in the immunology classroom (where I was mostly dozing, if not sleeping), that I remember a lot more about it.

You guys should have a private forum :D
Am I the only one here who hasn't had an immunology course in his life?

Ok and we would talk foreign languages like Immunologits or biophysicologian, that's it?
I need some practice in those, that's a long time since I last had an opportunity to speak them. :wink:

Will we have our own edition of babel fish? to badly translate our discussion in english?

No, you aren't, Andrew... (again)

By the way, it is fun to read your discussion, Jelanen and Canalon ... :)

How dare you even insinuate that I'm remotely close to normal?!? I've never been so insulted in my life!!! This sort of affront cannot be tolerated.
