Sample text

IgG is the most abundant immunoglobulin in serum and the principal antibody class of a secondary (anamnestic or memory) immune response. , two light (κ or γ) and two heavy (μ) chains joined by interchain disulfide bridges. Because of its abundance, its capacity to activate (fix) complement, and the expression on phagocytes of Fcγ receptors, IgG is the most important antibody of secondary immune responses. IgG has an additional important property of being the only isotype that is actively transported across the placenta.

Nonreplicating vaccines, extracellular bacteria). Endogenous peptides are loaded into newly synthesized class I molecules in the endoplasmic reticulum following active transport from the cytosol. Loading of exogenous peptides into class II molecules, in contrast, occurs in acidic endosomal vacuoles. In addition to the recognition of lipids and lipid conjugates presented by CD1 molecules, there are other exceptions to the generalization that 10 MHC molecules only present (and T cells only recognize) oligopeptides.

Antigen-binding pockets of immunoglobulin (Ig) and T-cell receptor (TCR) are comprised of variable segments of two chains translated from transcripts that represent random V(D)J or VJ gene segment rearrangements. Antigen-binding grooves of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules are formed with contributions of α1 and β1 domains of class II molecules and α1 and α2 domains of class I molecules.
