Gesund oder krank: Das Immunsystem entscheidet

Jeder Mensch verfügt über ein leistungsfähiges Immunsystem, das ihn sicher durch die ständig lauernden Gesundheitsgefahren der Umgebung leitet. Entgleist diese körpereigene Abwehr oder läßt ihre Einsatzfreude nach, wird der Mensch krank. Arnold Hilgers und Inge Hofmann zeigen, wie die moderne Medizin die Geheimnisse und tips dieser inneren Schutztruppen entschlüsselt hat und vielen Feinden des Immunsystems auf die Schliche gekommen ist.

This quantity is a pragmatic biochemical consultant to the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), used to realize a objective substance in a liquid pattern. The ELISA is a vital and general diagnostic instrument in medication, animal future health, botany and caliber coverage procedures in meals and beverage construction.

They are divided into four subclasses (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4) which are distinguished by differences in their c chains, as is denoted by the numerical suffixes c1 to c4. The heavy chains have one variable domain and three constant domains. The molecular weight of IgG amounts to a total of ca. 150 000 Da. The light chains (ca. 212 amino acids) contribute around 23 000 Da, and the heavy chains (ca. 450 amino acids) around 50 000±70 000 Da in the various subclasses. IgG3 is heavier than all other IgG subclasses because it contains a long series of disulfide bonds in the so-called hinge region.

70 000 Da). This involves a certain portion of the membrane receptor that binds IgA on the extraluminal side of the epithelial cell. The receptor undergoes cleavage, and the portion that was bound to IgA is released along with the immunoglobulin. Burmester, Color Atlas of Immunology © 2003 Thieme All rights reserved.
