Structure of Matter From Biophysical Point of View

Author: Katarína Kozlíková

The lecture „Structure of Matter From Biophysical Point of View“ is aimed to give a brief introduction to some applications of physics at microscopic level in medicine. It explains the fundamental problem of science, gives an overview of important stages in structure analysis, explains different structure and forms of matter, physical interactions, general properties and characteristics of matter, Heisenberg uncertainty principle, basic properties of elementary particles, the principle and usefulness of Schrödinger equation.

Human skin seems to be simply external coverage of the human body. This statement is not completely true, as human skin, in addition to its protective function from the external environment, does have a range of other functions such as mechanical barrier, external immune barrier, participation in thermoregulation, excretion of sweat and sebum, sensory functions, and identification functions for the human being. Skin is the largest organ of the human body, as its average surface in adult persons is about 2 m2 and its total mass is about 5 kg. An extensive burn injury affecting more than 20% of the body surface area, can lead to temporary, or permanent dysfunction or failure of the skin organ which could become a life threatening situation.

B lymphocytes and plasma cells

Author: Milan Buc

annotation image

B lymphocytes are principal cells that mediate humoral adaptive immunity. After their maturation in the bone marrow, B cells enter peripheral lymphoid tissues, which are the sites of interaction with foreign antigens. Production of antibodies is initiated by the interaction of antigens with a small number of mature B cells specific for each antigen. An antigen binds to the membrane receptors on specific B cells and initiates a series of responses that lead to two principal changes: cell proliferation resulting in expansion of the clone, and differentiation to either plasma cells actively secreting antibodies or to memory cells.

Key words: B cells, subsets of B cells, memory B cells, plasma cells
