Our bodyâs immune system contains several different types of biological molecules, cells, tissues and organs that form a functional system to fight against diseases. Their actions are organized and interrelated to each other in order to get an optimized system of protection.
In humanâs body, there are various biological molecules that greatly affect its immune system. These biological molecules include carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, etc. which have specific roles in maintaining homeostatic condition of the body. The concentration of each of these molecules is constant in human blood. Any imbalance in the system results in malfunctioning of the body cells. There is a wide network between these molecules and the immune cells. This network forms a way of communication between the two. The immune cells constantly receive and send chemical signals on account of any imbalance in the body. They play an important role in maintaining proper functioning in the body. This is mainly influenced by the effect of biological macromolecules that forms an intermediate measure between the bodyâs somatic cells and its immune cells. The interaction between immune cells and biological molecules is important for the functioning of each and every organ.
