Storyboard Text

  • The kitty played in the garden today and caught an infection in the eye called anterior uveitis from taxoplasmosis in the garden.
  • The kittys immune system proteins will bind to the surface of the bacteria by a process called opsonisation. 
  • The cats bacteria is then coated with molecules that phagocytic cells recognize and respond to.
  • bacteria
  • complement receptor
  • phagocyte
  • Keep in mind the bacteria is opsonised with complement 
  • After bacteria is ingested by phagocytosis, they are killed by various processes that occur inside the cell, and broken into small fragments by enzymes.
  • As the cats immune system fights off the bacteria the cat needs to visit the vet just in case.
