First of all it is important to have in mind that antibodies can have many different subclasses (IgM, IgA, IgE, IgG). Most research applications of antibodies use IgGs and thus that is what will be discussed here.
IgGs are antibodies that have 2 antigen bonding site. Each B cell (B lymphocyte) produces antibodies with unique antigen binding sites. These antigen binding sites can bind to a variety of molecules from ...
This solution helps with a question about antibodies and biochemical reagents.
