Protein B, a selective bacterial IgA Fc-binding protein isolated from group B streptococci, has been used to quantify fluid phase and immobilized human IgA. Protein B detects both human IgA1 and IgA2 subclasses and is also reactive with secretory IgA. Protein B can be used immobilized to microtiter plates to capture IgA or following biotinylation as a(More)
