Learning Objectives
Blueprint ID Learning Objectives
6452 describe the antigen-dependent differentiation steps that transform mature B cells into plasma cells and memory B cells
6453 describe how antigen-specific receptors, accessory molecules and adhesion molecules contribute to the specificity and avidity of lymphocyte interactions with other cells
6454 describe interactions that occur between helper T cells and antigen-presenting cells leading to T cell activation and delivery of help
6455 describe the affect of isotype switching and somatic hypermutation on the biological functions and antigen-binding affinity of immunoglobin molecules
6457 differentiate between T cell subsets on the basis of co-receptor expression, function and cytokine expression pattern
6466 describe the sequence of events associated with thymic T cell maturation and selection and know their general location
