    About the Lecture

    The lecture B-Cell Differentiation – Lymphocyte Activation by Peter Delves, PhD is from the course Adaptive Immune System. It contains the following chapters:

    • Clonal Selection of B-Cells
    • B-Cell Differentiation
    • Memory Cells

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. ...is of greater magnitude.
    2. ...is slower to be initiated.
    3. ...is less specific.
    4. ...involves B-cells but not T-cells.
    5. ...cannot generate memory cells.
    1. ...recognize a wide variety of antigens and produce a tailored response to that antigen.
    2. ...ensure that it does not recognize self antigens.
    3. ...respond to pathogens it has encountered before.
    4. ...constantly produce antibodies to any antigen humans can encounter.
    5. ...immediately respond to antigens that it encounters.
    1. Plasma cell- antibody secretion, Memory B cells- secondary immune response.
    2. Plasma cell- antibody secretion, Naive B cell- antigen recognition.
    3. Memory B cells- antibody secretion, Plasma cells- secondary immune response.
    4. Plasma cell- antibody secretion, Monocytes- phagocytosis.
    5. Memory B cells- secondary immune response, Dendritic cells- antigen presentation.
    1. They are responsible for mounting the secondary immune response, which is qualitatively and quantitatively superior to the primary immune response.
    2. They ensure that B cell differentiation is efficient and rapid.
    3. They recruit T cells to help respond to antigens.
    4. They secrete cytokines which cause the naive B cells to differentiate into a specific antigen target.
    5. They secrete antibodies which are capable of binding the antigen they encounter and mounting a secondary immune response.
