Examination question        2

  1. Viral antigens          are      predominantly           presented       via       MHC class       I     molecules,      bacterial         antigens          via      MHC   class           What  is        the      reason     for      this?
  2. Name and      briefly explain            a          process           by        which  bacterial         antigens     can      be        presented       via       MHC   I          to        CD8+  T
  3. Why could   it          be        interesting      to         use      this      mechanism     to         develop     more   successful       vaccines?
  4. List central steps   in         T-cell          Name  accessory factors      that     are     involved         and      briefly explain           how    they    contribute     to        successful      T     cell     activation.
  5. Into which  main    effector           T          cell      subsets           can      naïve   CD4+   and     CD8+   T          differentiate   upon   activation?
  6. What factors            determine      the       differentiation           into     the       different     CD4+   T          cell      effector           lineages          and     what   are     the      main   characteristics/functions          of        the      different        subsets?

  3. Where and      at         which  level    in         the       B-cell   development  do        these   processes     occur?
  4. Describe the       mechanism     of         V(D)J   recombination           (include          a          figure,     remember      to         explain            your    drawing).
  5. Describe the      mechanism    of        class

  2. What are the  main     biological            functions of       complement    factor  split      products            a?
  3. Coombs and      Gell      classified        hypersensitivity         reactions        into     several       How    many?
  4. Why are      the       immediate      reactions        immediate      and      the       delayed           type     delayed?         Explain           in         only     a          few
  5. Explain the       development  of         the       severe hemolytic       disease           of         the     newborn

(erythroblastosis           fetalis).            You     may     illustrate         by        drawing          a     schematic.      Which type     of         hypersensitivity         is         this?    Explain           shortly     how     this      condition        may     be        treated.
