Immune System

Plasma cells produce and segregate antibodies. The antibodies mark pathogens for destruction by phagocytic cells, they coat key sites on pathogens necessary for infection, and they induce the complement cascade to react against antibody-bound pathogens.

Introduction of Immune System Immunity is the power of a person to acknowledge the “self” molecules that makeup one’s personal physique and to differentiate them from such “nonself” molecules as these present in infectious microorganisms and toxins.

Nutrition In Animals

Animals cannot make food on their own. They depend on plants for their food either directly or indirectly. All organisms including humans require nutrients for the growth, repair, and functioning of the body. They get these nutrients from the digestion of food. Process of Nutrition In Animals: There are five steps in the process of… Continue reading Nutrition In Animals

Digestion

Digestion Digestion is the breakdown of large insoluble food molecules into small water-soluble food molecules so that they can be absorbed into the lymph and blood plasma.  Digestion in human is a long process so for the convenience of study it is divided into these 5 steps, as mentioned below: a) Digestion in Buccal Cavity: … Continue reading Digestion
