Macrophages and professional antigen-presenting cells, such as dendritic cells, secrete IL-12. g. g. g. Toxoplusma gondil). IL-12 is extremely potent in promoting Thl-biased differentiation by direct influences on the Th cells. Receptors for IL-12 appear to be restricted to recently activated, 28 Adverse Reactions to Food uncommitted Th cells and Thl cells, and are absent from differentiated Th2 cells, although there is evidence of functional IL-12 receptors on memory Th2 cells. The most potent Th2-promoting stimulus is IL-4 in the absence of IFN-)I.

Some of the effector cells generated by clonal expansion persist long after elimination of the microorganism and form the basis of immunological memory. Immunological memory is a characteristic of adaptive immunity and explains why re-exposure to a pathogen results in an immune response that is more rapid in onset and more effective in eliminating the microorganism. In contrast to innate immunity, the antigen specificities of adaptive immunity reflect the individual's lifetime exposure to infectious agents, and will consequently differ between individuals.

MHC class I1 molecules comprise a 34 kDa c1 chain and a 29 kDa p chain; both span the cell membrane and are MHC coded. Each chain is divided into two domains, with association of the a1 and PI domains forming an open ended peptide binding cleft, into which processed antigen peptide fragments are incorporated. The source of the peptide, bound by the two classes of MHC molecules, differs. MHC class I molecules bind peptides that originate from pathogen proteins synthesised within the cell cytosol, typically viruses and certain bacteria.
