Mast cells function
  • Participate on defence against bacterial and
    parasites infection
  • Develop immediate hypersensitivity reactions
    (production of IgE antibodies in response to an
    antigen, binding of IgE to Fc receptors of mast
    cells, cross-linking of the bound IgE by the
    antigen and release of mast cell mediators)
  • Take part in reparation of tissues -
    angiogenesis, production of intercellular

27. Immune mechanisms of the inflammation (local
and systemic reaction)
  • a complex reaction of the innate immune system
    in vascularized tissues that involves
    accumulation and activation of leukocytes and
    plasma proteins at a site of infection, toxin
    exposure or cell injury
  • Iniciated by changes in blood vessels that
    promote leukocyte recruitment and movement of
    fluid and plasma proteins into tissue
  • Inflammation serves a protective function in
    controlling infections and promoting tissue

Inflammatory response
  • Local - signs redness, swelling, pain, heat
  • Systemic sings fever
  • Acute or chronic process

Inflammation - iniciation
  • 1. signal phagocytes and degranulated mast
    cells, substances released from damaged cells,
    parts of intercellular substance exposed by injury

Local inflamation
  • Increase of vessels permeability plasma fluid
    passes through the blood vessels- swelling
  • Increase of endothelial adhesivity (expression of
    cell adhesion molecules)- phagocytes and
    lymphocytes adhere to endothelial cells pass to
    the tissues
  • The coagulation, fibrinolytic, kinin and
    complement systems are activated
  • Local nerve endings are influenced (pain)
  • changes in temperature regulation

Local inflamation
  • phagocytes- accumulate in a site of injury,
    produce cytokines
  • Ag APC home to LN (lymph nodes) - activate T
    cells and induce their terminal differentiation,
    activation of B cells and their changes into
    plasma cells with production of antibodies
  • Mature Th 1 lymphocytes migrate from LN to the
    site of infection and stimulate macrophages

Systemic response (SR) to inflammation
  • Development of SR depends on
  • - range of damage
  • - duration of local inflammation
  • SR can arise also without local inflammation
  • - after massive enter of microorganisms into
    the blood septic shock
  • - after intravascular antigen impulse of
    noninfection character anaphylactic shock
  • Massive release of mediators (cytokines,
    complement, histamin)- leads to a massive
    vasodilatation- hypotensis- vascular collapse

Sings of systemic inflammation
  • Fever- caused by stimulation of hyppothalamic
    center of termoregulation (by proinflammatory
    cytokines TNF, IL-1, INF-gama)
  • Caused also by increase of proteosynthesis,
    increase of Hsp production (hot shock protein)

Mediators of inflammation
  • Cytokines produced in the site of inflammation-
    come through the blood into the liver- stimulate
    production of plasma proteins of acute
    inflammation phase (CRP, amyloid P, complement
    C3,C4), transport proteins (ceruloplasmin,
    transferin) and inhibitors of proteases (alfa
  • Proteins of acute phase function -
    opsonisation, activation of complement
  • Cytokines and mediators cause bone marrow to
    release and produce leukocytes- leukocytosis

Reparation of damaged tissues
  • Activation of reparation process
  • - occurs during later phases of inflammation

29. Physiological mechanisms of regulation of the
immune system.
Immune mechanisms of regulation
  • Immune system is regulated by
  • Antigen
  • Antagonistic peptid
  • Antibodies
  • Cytokines and intercellular contact
  • T lymphocytes
  • Neuroendocrine regulation

  • Antigen competition peptides from different
    antigens compete for binding-sites on the MHC gp
    antigen is able to suppress expression of other
  • the binding strenght of peptide to MHC gp II
  • density of peptid-MHC gp II complex on the
    surface of APC
  • Immune response finishes after extinction of
    antigen due to a short life-span of effector

  • Agonists - peptide fragments of antigen with
    adequate binding to MHC gp, recognition by T
    cells with sufficient affinity induce full
    response of T cells
  • Partial agonists induce a qualitative different
    response of T cells - peptides have a similar
    structure, bind adequately to MHC gp, but make
    too weak or too strong interaction with T cells
  • Antagonists induce anergy of T cells

  • Antibodies have an effector and regulatory
  • Secreted antibodies compete with BCR for
    antigen negative regulators of B cells
  • Immune complexes of antibody and antigen bind
    to the surface of B cells interaction of
    signaling molecules (protein-kinases,
    protein-phosphatases) inhibit B cells
    activation ( antibody feedback)

  • Inhibition of cytokine effect by endocytosis of
    their receptors or by binding of inhibitors to
    their receptors
  • Inhibitory receptors protection against too
    easy T cells activation
  • Apoptotic receptor (Fas) mediates a negative
    regulation after binding to ligand FasL on
    activated T cells causes lysis of cell

NEGATIVE REGULATION mediated by T lymphocytes
  • Th2 cells produce IL-4, IL-10- suppress immune
    response of Th1 cells
  • Suppression of T cells occurs after recognition
    an antigen on cells different from APC (missing
    of co-stimulating signals)
  • CD8 T cells secrete soluble forms of TCR -
    compete with TCR on the surface of other cells-
  • Regulatory Tr1 cells (CD4)- secrete
    IL-10-anti-inflammatory effect, induce tolerance
    to autoantigens

  • Neurotrasmiters influence leukocytes by binding
    to the specific receptors (noradrenalin)
  • CS, growth hormons, thyroxin, endorfins
    influence the leukocytes by binding to the
    specific receptors
  • Leukocytes produce endorfins, TSH, growth hormon,
    vitamin D3, ACTH
  • Cytokines influence nerve system (IL-1, IL-6)
  • Stress influences immune system-
    cortocosteroids-activity of phagocytes, NK cells

  • The same antigen can induce active immune
    response or active tolerance depends on
  • Condition of immune system
  • Character of antigen (size, structure of
  • Dose of antigen (too low or too high doses-induce
  • Route of antigen administration (s.c.-induce
    immune response, p.o. or i.v.- induce tolerance)

32. HLA system, genetic background. HLA typing.
MHC (major histocompatibility complex)
  • human MHC HLA (human leukocyte antigens)
  • Genes of MHC complex are codominantly expressed
    alleles inherited from both parents are
    expressed equally are polymorphic many
    different alleles are present

Contain of MHC complex
  • MHC gp are encoded by genes localized on short
    arm of human 6. chromosome
  • The MHC locus- contains 4 single blocks of loci
  • - HLA Ags I are encoded by loci A, B, C
  • - HLA Ags II locus D
  • - HLA Ags III locus between HLA I a II
    (contains genes with nondirected participation in
    histocompatibility- genes for complement, TNF)

Polymorphism of MHC gp
  • A lot of different forms of alleles (of each
    isotype) exist in the population
  • Forms of alleles differ in 1 or more amino acids
    in their binding-site for peptide
  • Importance of polymorphism
  • - positive allows to bind a lot of types of
  • - negative complicates transplantation

MHC gp
  • The MHC was discovered as the genetic locus that
    is the principal determinant of acceptance or
    rejection of tissue grafts exchanged between
  • Individuals that are identical at their MHC locus
    will accept grafts from one another
  • Individuals that differ at their MHC loci will
    reject such grafts

Function of MHC gp
  • Physiologic function of MHC molecules is to
    display peptides derived from protein antigens to
    antigen- specific T lymphocytes
  • bind peptides
  • transport peptides to the cell surface
  • display peptides to T lymphocytes

Classification of MHC gp
  • MHC gps class I
  • - display intracellular proteins to CD8 T
  • MHC gps class II
  • - display extracellular proteins to CD4 T

HLA typing
  • The combination of class I and class II antigens
    expressed by a person is called his/her HLA
  • The combination of class I and class II alleles
    is the HLA genotype. In most cases, the genotype
    reflects the phenotype.

HLA typing
  • HLA typing identifies a person's HLA type and,
    therefore, helps to characterize the immune
    function of that person.
  • Different loci and different levels of resolution
    are required for different clinical applications

HLA typing
  • HLA typing is routinely used for
  • matching donors and recipients in solid organ or
    hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
  • helping in the diagnosis of certain autoimmune or
    anti-inflammatory diseases
  • determining eligibility of patients to tumor
    vaccination protocols when the vaccine is
    HLA-allele dependent

HLA typing
  • The peripheral blood lymphocytes from the
    indiviual are incubated with antibodies that are
    known to react with specific HLA molecules and
  • If there is lysis of the cells, that individual
    carries the HLA protein recognized by that
    specific antibody.

HLA typing
  • Molecular techniques can now be used to type HLA
  • PCR using primers that amplify only certain HLA
    sequences allow accurate identification of HLA
  • This has the advantage of not requiring the
    preparation of live cells from the individual to
    be typed.
