T-cells multiply and attack
Once activated, T-cells multiply in order to attack
and destroy the threat. Once the infected cells
are terminated, the germs die along with them.
T-cells can work in a similar way to kill cancer cells.
Alerting T-cells to a threat
In order for T-cells to be activated, the dendritic cell
recognizes and processes an enemy in a format that
the T-cell can recognize through its T-cell receptor.
End of the T-cell response
Once the threat to the body is gone some of those
T-cells convert to “memory T-cells” and stay in the
body. That way, the next time the body encounters
another threat, these memory T-cells are ready to
rapidly destroy it. This is how some vaccinations work.
