Antibody avidity It is a measure of the overall strength of binding of an antigen with many antigenic determinants and multivalent antibodies. http://pathmicro.med.sc.edu/mayer/ab-ag-rx.htmPowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 14 Immunoglobulin G Highest concentration Long half life 4 subclasses- IgG1 to IgG4 Importance Major immunoglobulin in Humoral defense High affinity but low avidity High capacity to activate complement Only Ab that can cross the placenta (Except subtype IgG2) Presence signifies chronic infection or immunityPowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 15 Immunoglobulin M Largest of all antibodies The five monomer subunits are arranged with their Fc regions in the center of the pentamer and the ten antigen-binding sites on the periphery of the molecule. The polymer is held together by a J chain Low affinity, High avidity Most efficient binding Importance Best complement fixation (30 times better than IgG ) Indicates acute immunity (First Ab to appear) Can be selectively removed by treating with mercaptoethanolPowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 16 Immunoglobulin A Most predominant Immunoglobulin in mucosal surfaces Can be present in 2 form Monomeric Dimeric Dimeric form has J chain Before secretion pick up additional structure called “secretory piece” Importance: Mucosal immunity Secretory IgA ( SIgA ) represents the most abundant immunoglobulin of body secretions such as saliva, tears, colostrum and gastrointestinal secretions Human colostrumPowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 17 Immunoglobulin A Review http://www.invivogen.com/review-iga Schematic drawing of lacrimal gland acinar cell showing the classic mechanism for androgen (indicated here by testosterone) regulation of secretory immunoglobulin A. Dartt etal; (2005) Advances in Organ Biology Vol 10: 21–82PowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 18 Immunoglobulin E Most potent immunoglobulin Also known as “ Reaginic antibody” Involved in Parasitic immunity, P-K reaction ( Prausnitz and Kustner ) Implicated in Type 1 Hypersensitivity Text Book of Immunology- Kuby; 5ePowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 19 Immunoglobulin D Major membrane bound immunoglobulin expressed by mature B cellsPowerPoint Presentation: © Varun C N- Antibodies 20 The Clonal selection theory of antibody formation Gustav J.
