Effector Functions of Ig Classes

Most Abundant  = IgG = workhorseIgD and IgE are rarest.

Immunity to fetus — IgG

IgM always expressed first

IgG expressed during memory response    Mucosa is IgA

IgG

Opsonization = IgG

Complement = IgM and IgG

Hypersensitivity = IgE  FC Receptors = Mass Cells and Basophils express them

IgD

IgA = Respiratory tract

Anaphylaxis = IgE 

IgG Convalescent patient

IgA is Breast feeding

Complement = IgG

Elisa

 

 

Elisa Assay. You’re looking for antibody against organisms.

You coat the well with HIV protein.
