SELECTED ANTIBODIES FOR IMMUNO ONCOLOGY RESEARCH
Immunology is the study of cells of the immune system, their development and functions, and how they cooperate to protect us from foreign invaders and cancer. Each type of leukocyte has its own set of surface receptors and specialized functions. By genetic recombination T and B lymphocytes develop unique receptors that respond to specific antigens and distinguish self from non-self. Immune cells use cell-cell interactions, antigen capture, processing, and presentation, and soluble mediators to produce inflammatory reactions and antigen-specific responses. Mature B cells produce antibodies, while T cells are responsible for cellular responses. T and B cells also combine to generate immunologic memory which allows the immune system to respond more vigorously to subsequent exposures to the same antigens.
