Practice: Sickle cell anemia is a blood disorder where affected individuals have “half-moon” shaped red blood cells. Sickle cell anemia is an example of a _________ disease.

Practice: Bacterial pathogen Z has proteins on its surface which bind to receptors on the host cell’s surface. After it is bound, the host cell engulfs the bacterium. This means that the proteins on the surface of bacterium Z are:
