Arian you might want to create a new topic for your question. As for diabetes, i was wondering why they dont cure it the same way as they cure neurotic illness'. In neurology, they can deactivate enzymes that make neurotrasmitters like GABA to make a person feel less anxiety. So with diabetis, why d...

Well I am in high school, and really have no idea what i'm talking about, but im really interested in immunology. so if im wrong, i guess i am. you said that both a/b and d/g t-cells present CD3? i thought that d/g t cells presented CD3 and a/b presented CD4?

Ok you answered everything pretty much. but I'm more so wondering if one can move the CD3 protein from a gamma t cell to a Cd4 t cell, and place the CD3 protein on the surface of the CD4 t cell to act as a replacement. This would hopefully make it so that HIV gp120 wouldnt be able to bind to t-cells

Cluster of Differenciation(CD) replacement... Immunology

Hi, i was wondering if it's possible to use radiation or some process in order to change the surface proteins, CD's, on T-cells. I was particularly thinking of replacing the CD protein from a gamma/delta T-cell, which they are still researching, and putting it on a Cd4 T-cell. Is this possible? If s...

okay thanks. ill ask my biology teacher how exactly to disect those diagrams. i asked this question because my teacher doesn't know the answer by the way, so you don't think you answered when my teacher could have. thanks!

ya that does a little but unfortuantely i knew most of it. i want to know how two proteins bind together. almost like how a glycerol and a fatty acid join through hydrolysis to make fat or whatever. i need to know how two proteins bond, and stay together. Im mainly wondering because in immunology th...

Protein bonding(antigens)

How do two proteins bond together? More specifically, two antigens. As in CD's and MHC proteins in immunology studies. I want to understand how exactly a B cell or T cell bond with the antigen to the virus gp. i understand the general process but i want to know molecular bonding between two polypept...
