Hello kids, today we are taking a field trip to learn about HIV, are you all ready!?
SO MUCH TO LEARN!
See students we are almost there! The first thing we will learn today is the macromolecules central to HIV
HIV MACROMOLECULES 2 miles
HIV MACROMOLECULES: The main molecules involved in HIV are proteins like antigens and antibodies, and lymphocytes like T cells
The first lesson today is on Antigens, Antibodies, and Lymphocytes. These three molecules are central to the HIV. Antigens are any molecules that can lead to a immune system response in the body. and protein antigens are the strongest, making it very easy for the antibodies and T cells to recognize them. Antibodies are a class of proteins created by plasma cells that contain a unique region that can recognize one antigen and start an immune response. T cells are lymphocytes, type of white cells, that are able to recognize antigens and thus excite the immune system
HIV CURE MACROMOLECULES: CCR5
OK now, you all understand the importance of the immune system and the different macromolecules involved in HIV. Lets talk about the molecules scientists have discovered to be helpful to the solution to HIV. The central molecule of the cure that scientists have found is a protein called CCR5, but we will hear more about that from the scientists. Look we are almost there!
Learning about the macromolecules was very interesting! But I need more information from the scientists!
HIV RESEARCH- NEXT EXIT
Q. What do scientists use to freshen their breath? A. Experi-mints!
