The formidable range of infectious agents that confronts the immune system. Knowing when to make an immune response The ability to recognize and respond to foreign entities is central to the operation of the immune system The vertebrate immune system is a conglomeration of cells and molecules that cooperate to protect us from infectious agents and also provides us with a surveillance system to monitor the integrity of host tissues.

Although the immune system is quite elaborate, as we shall see, its function can be boiled down to two basic roles; recognition of foreign substances and organ- isms that have entered the body, and removal of such agents by a diverse repertoire of cells and molecules that act in concert to eliminate the potential threat. The cells and molecules that comprise the innate immune system are preoccupied with detecting the presence of particular molecular patterns that are typically associated with infectious agents Figure 1.

Tissue damage can also instigate an immune response Aside from infection, there is a growing recognition that tissue damage, leading to nonphysiological cell death, can also provoke activation of the immune system Figure 1. In this situation, the molecules that activate the immune system are derived from self but are not normally present within the extracellular space.

Necrosis is typically caused by tissue trauma, burns, certain toxins, as well as other non-physiological stimuli and is characterized by rapid swelling and rupture of the plasma membranes of damaged cells. Chapter 1: PRRs can be either soluble or cell- associated and can instigate a range of responses upon encountering their appropriate ligands. Necrotic cells release danger- associated molecular patterns DAMPs , whereas apoptotic cells typically do not. Stimuli that induce necrosis frequently cause severe cellular damage, which leads to rapid cell rupture with consequent release of intracellular DAMPs.

On the other hand, because stimuli that initiate apoptosis are typically physiological and relatively mild, apoptotic cells do not rupture and their removal is coordinated by macrophages and other cells of the innate immune system, before release of DAMPs can occur.

For this reason, apoptosis is not typically associated with activation of the immune system. It might seem surprising that the immune system can also be activated by self-derived molecules, however, this makes good sense when one considers that events leading to necrotic cell death are often rapidly followed or accompanied by infection. Furthermore, if a pathogen manages to evade direct detection by the immune system, its presence will be betrayed if it provokes necrosis within the tissue it has invaded.

Before moving on, we should also note that there is another mode of cell death that frequently occurs in the body that is both natural and highly controlled and is not associated with plasma membrane rupture and release of intracellular contents.

This mode of cell death, called apoptosis see Videoclip 2 , is under complex molecular control and is used to eliminate cells that have reached the end of their natural lifespans.

Apoptotic cells do not activate the immune system because cells dying in this manner display molecules on their plasma membranes e.

In this way, DAMPs remain hidden Recognition of nonself entities is achieved by means of an array of pattern recogni- tion receptors and proteins collectively called pattern recog- nition molecules that have evolved to detect conserved i. In practice, PAMPs can be anything from carbohydrates that are not normally exposed in vertebrates, proteins only found in bacteria such as flagellin a component of the bacterial flagellum that is used for swimming , double-stranded RNA that is typical of RNA viruses, as well as many other molecules that betray the presence of microbial agents.

The cardinal rule is that a PAMP is not normally found in the body but is a common feature of many frequently encountered pathogens. Pattern recognition molecules also appear to be involved in the recognition of DAMPs released from necrotic cells. Fortunately, we have many ways in which an impending infection can be dealt with, and indeed it is a testament to the efficiency of our immune systems that the majority of us spend most of our lives rela- tively untroubled by infectious disease.

One way of dealing with unwelcome intruders involves the binding of soluble humoral pattern recognition mole- cules, such as complement a series of molecules we will deal with later in this chapter , mannose-binding lectin, C-reactive protein, or lysozyme, to the infectious agent and this can lead directly to killing through destruction of microbial cell wall constituents and breaching of the plasma membrane due to the actions of such proteins.

The latter humoral factors are also adept at coating microorganisms and enhancing their uptake and subsequent destruction by phagocytic cells. Other pattern recognition receptors are cell associated and engage- ment of such receptors can lead to phagocytosis of the micro- organism followed by its destruction within phagocytic vesicles.

Just as importantly, cellular PRR engagement also results in the activation of signal transduction pathways that culminate in the release of soluble messenger proteins cytokines, chemokines and other molecules, see below that mobilize other components of the immune system. Cells of the immune system release messenger proteins that amplify immune responses An important feature of the immune system is the ability of its constituent cells to communicate with each other upon Figure 1.

Cytokines and chemokines can have pleiotrophic effects. Note that the effects of chemokines and cytokines shown are not exhaustive. Although cells of the immune system are capable of releasing numerous biologically active molecules with diverse functions, two major categories of proteins— cytokines and chemokines—have particularly important roles in immunity.

Cytokines are a diverse group of proteins that have pleiotropic effects, including the ability to activate other cells, induce differentiation and enhance microbicidal activity Figure 1. Cytokines are commonly released by cells of the immune system in response to PAMPs and DAMPs, and this has the effect of altering the activation state and behaviour of other cells to galvanise them into joining the fight.

Both types of messenger proteins act by dif- fusing away from the cells secreting them and binding to cells equipped with the appropriate plasma membrane recep- tors to receive such signals.

Cytokines, chemokines and their respective receptors are discussed at length in Chapter 9. Innate versus adaptive immunity Three levels of immune defense Before we get into the details, we will first take a look at how the immune system works in broad brushstrokes.

Roitt's Essential Immunology

The verte- brate immune system comprises three levels of defense Figure 1. First, there is a physical barrier to infection that is pro- vided by the skin on the outer surfaces of the body, along with the mucous secretions covering the epidermal layers of the The vertebrate immune system comprises three levels of defense. Infectious agents that successfully penetrate the physical barriers are then engaged by the cells and soluble factors of the innate immune system.

The innate immune system is also responsible for triggering activation of the adaptive immune system, as we will discuss later in this chapter.

The cells and products of the adaptive immune system reinforce the defense mounted by the innate immune system. Any infectious agent attempting to gain entry to the body must first breach these surfaces that are largely imperme- able to microorganisms; this is why cuts and scrapes that breach these physical barriers are often followed by infection.

The second level of defense is provided by the innate immune system, a relatively broad-acting but highly effective defense layer that is largely preoccupied with trying to kill infectious agents from the moment they enter the body. The actions of the innate immune system are also responsible for alerting the cells that operate the third level of defense: The latter cells represent the elite troops of the immune system and can launch an attack that has been specifically adapted to the nature of the infectious agent using sophisticated weapons such as antibodies.

Innate immune responses are immediate and relatively broad acting Upon entry of a foreign entity into the body, the innate immune response occurs almost immediately. Innate immune responses do not improve upon frequent encounter with the same infectious agent.
