Bacteria, invading the human body, are phagocytosed (taken into the body of the macrophage). The macrophage then removes the specific identifying markers, or antigens, of the invading bacteria. It places these antigens on its own surface. Helper T-call lymphocytes, which are specially designed to fight this invading bacteria, have on their own surface a complementary antigen marker, much like a puzzle piece. When these specialty T-cell lymphocytes notice a macrophage presenting the complement antigen they initiate a response which results in B-cell proliferation.
The T-Cell Activation and B-Cell Response. A bacteria invades the human body, and, with the aie of T-cells, it is engulfed by a macrophage cell. The macrophage then signals T-cells to cause B-cells to multiply.
