THE IMMUNE SYSTEM BY FRANK PART 2

This storyboard does not have a description.
Now the B cells! My personal favourite! These little guys are also known as lymphocytes and are a type of white blood cell. They receive the information about the antigen from Helper T-cells and search for that antigen. When the antigen is found, the B-cell consumes it and begins to create an antibody. The B-cell then begins to multiply with the antibody to bind to specific antigens. This creates an antibody response.
We can think of B-cells as sea horses. We can think of the first B-cell as the father seahorse and all the duplicates of that first B-cell as the babies of the seahorse-you know because they have thousands of them.
We can think of Killer T-cells as jelly fish. Jelly fish sting things that are threatening and Killer-T cells kill straitening cells by stinging it and deflating it.
Now for the feisty guys-Killer T-cells. These guys find and destroy infected cells that continue to reproduce the virus or infection. Killer T-cells use antigens to establish the difference between healthy and infected cells.
Next, the Suppressor T cells. These are basically the momma of the cell. Suppressor T-cells tell the B-cells when to stop multiplying and Killer T-cells to stop killing before they start to attack the body.
We can think of Suppressor T-cells as little crab dudes. They nip everyone in the butt to keep everyone in line. *pinch pinch*
Finally, Memory T-cells. This is the final stage of the immune system and keeps your body from being attacked by the same antigen over and over. If that antigen were to enter the body again it would take the body less time to respond and fight because the body already has the antibody on file thanks to the memory T-cells.
We can think of memory T-cells as dolphins because they're the smartest sea creature. DUH. See? So smart it can walk.
So that's all you need to know about the immune system, thanks for visiting my island. For the record my parents hated me and named me Frank. Im purple because I have a rare turtle auto immune disease that takes away my green. I know all about the human immune system because I wanted to learn about the turtle one but I learn about the wrong one. Im also on this island all by my self because my turtle flock banished me so no one else catches my disease :(. ANYWAYS... thanks for visiting my island, take care buhBYE.
