i think there was an error on midterm 1

Post  gir on Mon Mar 17, 2008 7:26 am

so i decided to look at my old exam a little to late to notice this for a regrade BUT anyways


problem 3 on the green form asks what do helper t and plasma cells have in common
and the answer key says that they both form memory cells
but plasma cells don't form memory cells(at least thats what I remember)its the B cells and CTL and Helper T cells that form memory cells

Am i right? did i miss something?
this is going to bother me.

some plasma cells can last up to years and continue to secrete antibodies in response to an infection. this can be considered akin to a memory cell b/c it is an increase in type and prolonged excretion based upon infection.
