The immune system is able to recognize and eliminate a foreign antigen but does not normally react harmfully to self molecules (self-tolerance) . Lymphocytes display common morphologic features but differ in their origin, in how they recognize antigens, and in their functions. Lymphocytes that have not encountered antigen (nai've lymphocytes) are small (8 to 10 /lm in diameter), with a large nucleus and a small amount of cytoplasm containing mitochondria and ribosomes but no specialized organelles.

Metalloproteinases). The failure to switch off activated tissue fibroblasts has been proposed as a mechanism leading to chronic inflammation, through the persistent overexpression of chemokine and pro-inflammatory cytokines and consequent continuous recruitment of leukocytes. 21 Molecules of Innate Immunity The Complement System The complement system consists of several normally inactive plasma proteins that, after activation, interact to generate a number of products that mediate important effector functions, including promotion of phagocytosis and lysis of the cells on which complement is activated and stimulation of inflammation.

Activation of complement involves sequential proteolytic steps that generate an enzymatic cascade similar to that of the coagulation system. 22 There are three major pathways of complement activation (Fig. 3-6). The alternative pathway involves the direct binding of one of the complement proteins, C3b, to cells. The classic pathway involves a more sophisticated mode of activation, in which Cl binds to the CH 2 domains of immunoglobulin G CIgG) or to CH 3 domains of IgM that have bound antigen (see later discussion).
