    00:01 Humoral immunity is immunity provided by antibodies present in bodily fluid.

    00:08 It is the major function of the B-cell component of the adaptive immune response, in contrast to cell-mediated immunity which results from the activity of T-cells.

    00:19 However of course, T and B-cells work together.

    00:22 And B-cells can function as professional antigen presenting cells using their MHC Class II molecules to present peptide MHC to CD4+ T-cells.

    00:34 And helper T-cells help B-cells to class switch and differentiate into antibody-secreting plasma cells.

    00:43 So these two types of immunity if you like, humoral immunity and cell-mediated immunity, they’re not totally separate from each other.

    00:51 They very much work together.
