Differences between Primary and Secondary Immune Response

Differences between Primary and Secondary Immune Response

In a primary immune response, naive B cells are stimulated by antigen, become activated, and differentiate into antibody-secreting cells that produce antibodies specific for the eliciting antigen. A secondary immune response is elicited when the same antigen stimulates memory B cells, leading to production of greater quantities of specific antibody than are produced in the … Read moreDifferences between Primary and Secondary Immune Response

Differences between antigen and antibody

Differences between antigen and antibody Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to antigens (material perceived as foreign). The antibody response to a particular antigen is highly specific and often involves a physical association between the two molecules. This association is governed by biochemical and molecular forces.¬†The reaction between antigens (Ags) and antibodies … Read moreDifferences between antigen and antibody
