back to overview

Immunoglobulins are multi-subunit proteins produced by the immune system. They are comprised of two heavy and two light chains with additional ancillary polypeptide chains depending on their isoforms. The immunoglobulins (Ig) can be divided into five different classes (IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM) and various subclasses.
