An antigen is a substance that stimulates an immune response, especially the production of antibodies. Antigens are usually proteins or polysaccharides, but can be any type of molecule, including small molecules (haptens) coupled to a carrier-protein.As soon as the foreign particle (antigen), whether it may be a cell or any other foreign particle, it leads to activation of immune response which is of two types, Cell Mediated and Humoral Immunity. Cell mediated response is by the T lymphocytes/ cells, which are of three types, T helper cells, T cytotoxic cells and T suppressor cells. T helper cells the "middlemen" of the adaptive immune system. Once activated, they divide rapidly and secrete ...
