To be precise, it is the cytotoxic T lymphocyte that recognizes the tumor cells.
Numerous tumor antigens have been identified that can be recognized by cytotoxic T cells through MHC class I.
T cells use two major mechanisms to kill tumor cells: the death receptor pathway and the granule exocytosis pathway.
In the death receptor pathway, the lymphocyte displays the death ligand CD95L on the cell surface, triggering apoptosis via the death receptor CD95 on the target cell.
Hope it helps! ^__^
Omg yes! We would feel so honored! :D
But there are some specifics our graphic designer would like to discuss with you. Can you inbox me your email address? We’ll get back to you asap.
Aww.. Thank you! <3
You know what I love about Immunology?
It is violent when needed.. *rawr*
At the same time, it has the ability to make peace with those who do no harm :)
Oh my this is such a wonderful compliment.. Thank you so much <3

Hi! I have a test coming up and I do not have the time to make comics and explain it to you like I usually do =)
I’ll explain it to you later, I promise (Just please remind me if I forget!)
Here is a great post on VDJ recombination for now —> http://immense-immunology-insight.tumblr.com/post/84724911095/b-and-t-cell-maturation
I reblogged it myself for you.
Hope you get comfortable with immunology and rock it this year!
