The last lesson explored the idea that each B and T cell randomly makes a single receptor that is specific to a unique ligand. This cell then divides (clonal expansion), making exact copies of itself to respond to the threat. This lesson describes how B and T cells respond to disarm and kill pathogens after they have expanded. This includes antibodies production by B cells, killer T cell function, and processes T helper cells use to orchestrate the immune response.
