    Transcript

    00:01 So, let's have a look at the cells of the adaptive immune response.

    00:05 Helper T-cells, as their name suggests, help other cells in the immune system.

    00:11 They're particularly important in helping activate macrophages, activate cytotoxic T-cells and activate B-cells.

    00:19 Regulatory T-cells suppress other cells of the immune response.

    00:24 They have the opposite activity if you like, of the helper T-cell.

    00:28 Helper T-cells help, regulatory T-cells suppress immune responses.

    00:33 Cytotoxic T-cells are the adaptive response equivalent of the natural killer cell of the innate response, in that they kill infected cells.

    00:45 And B-cells and their fully differentiated progeny, the plasma cell, produce antibody molecules.

    Love the lectures
    By Lan W. on 30. July 2019 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

    Love the entire lectures by Professor Peter Delves. Explain the concept in such a simple way. So easy to follow. Clearly explain the things that usually confuse the students. And the ppt slides are fantastic summary.

     
    Excellent
    By Joe G. on 08. February 2019 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

    Very clear lectures that flow seamlessly with easy to remember high yield points. Very easy to follow.

     
    Great lectures - very useful
    By imran s. on 27. January 2019 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

    - Comments: please give examples for PRR & PAMPs and would have been useful if explained role of MHCI & II and CD4, Antigen/antibody in more detail. Thanks

     
    A great overview of the Immune System
    By Elzard S. on 02. December 2018 for Cells of the Adaptive Immune System

    Dr. Delves is very clear in his explanations of the immune system and is able to distill the complex nature of the immune system into a digestible series of lectures for students just beginning their understanding of the immune system.
