APC Cell Shift Dress Design

Antigen-presenting cells (APCs) are immune cells such as B cells, macrophages and dendritic cells that detect, engulf and kill foreign objects and microorganisms. Once a threat is detected, APCs present the whole or parts of an antigen on their cell surface with the help of special receptors. This process is essential for initiating adaptive immunity.  

Detection of the unknown substance on APCs by T cells causes the activation of B cells, which start with the production of specifically tailored antibodies that neutralise the antigen. Generation of memory cells allows our immune system to memorise encountered antigens, allowing to create a stronger and faster response to an antigen if it is reencountered. This helps us to become immune against pathogens as we have an efficient detection and defence mechanism in place.
