Novel approaches for generating anti-immunoglobulin antibodies for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
Anti-immunoglobulin antibodies, also called anti-Ig antibodies, are a type of antibody that binds to Immunoglobulins (Ig) in the body. Immunoglobulins, also known as antibodies, are proteins produced by the immune system in response to the presence of foreign substances or antigens in the body. These antibodies play an important role in defending the body against infection and disease. Anti-immunoglobulin antibodies are antibodies directed against immunoglobulin constant domains and are useful in detecting bound antibody molecules in immunoassays and other applications. These are divided into anti-isotypic antibodies made in different species, anti-allotypic antibodies made in the same species against allotypic variants, and anti-idiotypic antibodies made against unique determinants of a single antibody.Author(s): Eden Bogari
