Resource summary

Question 1

Question
Molecules that can be recognised by the immune system are called [blank_start]antigens[blank_end]. If antigens are distinguished as [blank_start]foreign[blank_end], an [blank_start]immune[blank_end] [blank_start]response[blank_end] is stimulated against them.
Answer
  • antigens
  • foreign
  • immune
  • response

Question 2

Question
Cells of the immune system called [blank_start]B cells[blank_end] produce antibodies against foreign antigens. This targets the [blank_start]antigen[blank_end] for destruction by specialised cells of the immune system. Some B cells will specialise into [blank_start]memory[blank_end] B cells, which remain in the body for long periods of time and are ready to respond [blank_start]quickly[blank_end] if the antigen is seen again.
Answer
  • B cells
  • antigen
  • memory
  • quickly

Question 3

Question
Vaccines exploit [blank_start]memory[blank_end] immunity, by exposing us to foreign antigens. The antigens alone [blank_start]cannot[blank_end] hurt us, but they do prepare our body for attack by pathogens by stimulating the specialisation of [blank_start]B memory cells[blank_end].
Answer
  • memory
  • cannot
  • B memory cells
