T cells...

Post by isabell » Sun Mar 05, 2006 9:22 pm

:shock: maybe they are tricky questions so it made me feel confuse about my answers, any replies i will appreciate

the type of T cell that improves the immune response is the:
helper T cell
supressor Tcell
cytotoxic T cell
memory T cell
IgT cell

i think is the helper T cell(if im right...),

so the aids virus attacks the helper T cells too?

Actually, it could be more than one answers. The question is very general, e.g. which immune response? which way to improve?

I am 1000% sure that "IgT cell" is NOT the answer :D

Dr Stein...I almost wrote the same thing! LOL! Yes, it is very broad and all of the T cells help improve immune response, but I think the helpers were the best of the selection.

When I saw IgT I had to do a double take! LOL! That was a clever one though...ImmunoglobulinT ...haha!

Hihi, yup true about our funny IgT :lol:

Well, yes, I think choosing the answer Helper T cell is a good idea. The reason is Th1 will activate cell-mediated immunity, whereas Th2 will activate B cell to generate humoral immune response. Good point, dude! ;)

I have to consider you for being my laboratory assistant :D
