  • nice presentation but you have done a mistake on slide no. 23, please correct it. You have typed the characteristic properties of IgM in the IgG column and vice versa. Moreover it would b great if you also had explained the structure of Igs in words also after showing their structural image and before listing their functions. Besides this, it is a good presentation over all.

Transcript

  • 1. ANTIBODIES JITENDRA KUMAR PANDEY ROLL NO. :- 01 (PG)MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY 3RD YR MGM MEDICAL COLLEGE, NAVI MUMBAI,
  • 2. DEFINITION:An antibody orimmunoglobulin (Ig) is aglycoprotein that is made byplasma cells in response toan antigen and can recognizeand bind to the antigen thatcaused its production.
  • 3. BASIC STRUCTURES: Antibodies have more than one antigen combining site Some bivalent Ab molecules can combine to form multimeric Abs that have upto 10 combining sites All Ig have a basic structure composed of 4 polypeptide chains connected to each other by disulphide bonds. Each light chain consist of 220 aa and has a mass of approx. 25kDa. Each heavy chain consists of about 440 aa and has a mass of 50-70kDa.
  • 4.  Both light and heavy chains contain 2 different regions constant and variable region The four chains are arranged in the form of a flexible “Y” with the hinge region and is termed as crystallizable fragment (Fc) and contains the site at which Ab binds. Top of the “Y” consist of two Ag binding fragments (Fab) that bind with antigenic determinant sites.
  • 5. LIGHT CHAIN: Thelight chain may be either of two distinct forms called “Kappa” and “Lambda” and can be distinguished by aa sequence of carboxyl portion of the chain.HEAVY CHAIN: In the heavy chain NH2 terminal has a pattern of variability similar to that of kappa and lambda of the light chain.
  • 6. BASIC STRUCTURE OF IMMUNOGLOBULIN
  • 7. IMMUNOGLOBULINS VARIANTS:
  • 8. Immunoglobulin Function Each end of the immunoglobulin molecule has a different role. The Fab region is concerned with binding to antigen, whereas the Fc region mediates binding to host tissue, various cells of the immune system, some phagocytic cells, or the first component of the complement system. The binding of an antibody with an antigen usually does not cause destruction of the antigen or of the microorganism , cell, or agent to which it is attached. Rather the antibody serves to mark and identify the target for immunologic attack and to activate nonspecific immune responses that can destroy the target.
  • 9. For example:- Bacteria that are covered with antibodies are better targets for phagocytosis by neutrophils and macrophages. The alteration of the surface of bacteria, viruses , and other particles so that they can be more readily phagocytized is termed opsonization. Immune destruction also is promoted by antibody-induced activation of the classical pathway.
  • 10. IMMUNOGLOBULIN CLASSES: 1. IgG:-
  • 11. FUNCTIONS: Immunity to new born. Potent activator of complement system. Neutralisation of toxins. IgG3 binds to Fc receptors- phagocytosis.
  • 12. 2. IgM:
  • 13. FUNCTIONS: Activationof classical pathway. Defence against multivalent bacterial antigens. Acts as opsonin. Present on B-cell surface, acts as antigen receptor.
  • 14. 3. IgA:-
  • 15. FUNCTIONS: Secretory antibody. Effective against bacterial like Salmonella, Vibrio cholerae, Niesseria gonorrhoea, etc. Effective against viruses like those causing Poliomyelitis & Influenza. Protection to infant gut.
  • 16. 4.IgD:FUNCTIONS:oB cell activation .oActs as receptor for Ag binding.
  • 17. 5.IgE: FUNCTIONS:oResponsible for immediate hypersensitivity or allergic reactions.oBinds to Fc receptors on basophils and mast cells.oRelease of substances like histamine , bradykinin and other vasoactive „mediators‟.
