abbreviation,  immunoglobulin. See antibody.
 
an immunoglobulin protein secreted by activated plasma cells, which evolve from B-cells. Antibodies are present throughout the blood and tissues; they are produced in response to stimulation by foreign antigens as part of the body's defense against disease. Specific antibodies bind to and act upon specific antigens; the antigen/antibody reaction forms the basis of humoral (TH2) immunity. Neutralizing antibodies destroy or inactivate infectious agents,while enhancing antibodies promote infection. There are 5 classes of immunoglobulins: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM. See also immunoglobulin A-M.

A class of proteins also known as antibodies<!-- (see) --> made by the B cells<!-- (see) --> of the immune system<!-- (see) --> in response to a specific antigen<!-- (see) -->, and containing a region that binds to this antigen (antigen-binding site). Each immunoglobulin is made up of two polypeptides<!-- (see) -->, a heavy chain and a light chain. These heavy and light chains complex to form the antigen binding site. Each group of immunoglobulins is named for the type of heavy chain that it contains. The heavy chain determines the post-antigen binding activity of an antibody. There are five classes of immunoglobulins: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM.
