Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Highly Purified E
IgA is the predominant immunoglobulin class in body secretions, such as saliva, tears, bronchial secretions, nasal mucosal secretions, prostatic fluid, vaginal secretions, and mucous secretions of the small intestines. It may serve both to defend against local infection and to prevent access of foreign antigens to the general immunologic system. It is also found in small amounts in blood. Because it is resistant to degradation by enzymes, secretory IgA can survive in harsh environments such as the digestive and respiratory tracts, to provide protection against microbes that multiply in body secretions. IgA does not activate complement, and opsonises only weakly. Its heavy chains are of the type . It exists in two forms, IgA1 (90%) and IgA2 (10%): IgA1 is found in serum and made by bone marrow B cells. In IgA2, the heavy and light chains are not linked with disulfide but with noncovalent bonds. IgA2 is made by B cells located in the mucosae and has been found to secrete into colostrum, maternal milk, tears and saliva.
