It is often helpful to draw a complicated pathway in the form of a flow chart to visualize the multiple steps and the ways in which the steps are connected to each other. Draw the antibody-mediated immune response pathway that acts in response to an invading virus.

Summary Introduction

To sketch: A flow chart depicting the antibody-mediated immune response pathway in response to a virus.

Introduction: Immune system is the body’s defense against foreign matter. The foreign matter may be an infectious pathogen or a foreign particle. The human body has two types of immunity, namely, innate immune system and adaptive immune system. The adaptive immune system further has two types, cell-mediated immunity, and antibody-mediated immunity.

Explanation of Solution

Pictorial representation: Fig 1 represents the flow chart of the antibody-mediated immune response in response to a virus. The pathway involves activation of T-cells to form T-helper cells, which in turn activate B-cells to form plasma cells and memory B-cells.

  Fig.1 Steps involved in antibody-mediated immune response to the virus...
