Structural analysis of human IgG-Fc glycoforms reveals a correlation between glycosylation and structural integrity.
Antibodies may be viewed as adaptor molecules that provide a link between humoral and cellular defence mechanisms. Thus, when antigen-specific IgG antibodies form antigen/antibody immune complexesExpand
