Mechanisms of antibacterial immunity of mucous membranes

Abstract

A survey based on both literary data and the authors own results, concerning the mechanisms of sIgA-mediated antibacterial immunity, is presented. Secretory IgA is characterized as a specific component of the immune system of mucous membranes, which can recognize harmful bacterial and distinguish them from indigenous microflora physiologically colonizing the mucous membranes, to fix them to the mucous membrane surface and to direct further factors, such as mucin, lysozyme, etc. (which form the effector component of the mucous membrane immunity system) for their final inactivation and neutralization.

Bacterial Cell Wall Structure (ASM)

Bacterial cell walls are made of peptidoglycan (also called murein), which is made from polysaccharide chains cross-linked by unusual peptides containing D-amino acids. Here is the latest research on bacterial cell wall structures.
