In addition to their role in binding antigen, antibodies can regulate immune responses through interacting with Fc receptors (FcRs). In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the mechanisms that regulate the activity of IgG antibodies in vivo. In this Review, we discuss recent studies addressing the multifaceted roles of FcRs for IgG (FcγRs) in the immune system and how this knowledge could be translated into novel therapeutic strategies to treat human autoimmune…

FcγRs in health and disease.
TLDR
How the interaction of these different ligands with classical and novel Fcγ-receptors influences the immune response is discussed and which strategies microorganisms have developed to prevent them are discussed.
The FcγR/IgG Interaction as Target for the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases
  • P. Sondermann
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of Clinical Immunology
  • 2016
TLDR
The presented approaches for the treatment of autoimmune diseases have the potential be more efficacious with fewer side effects than the currently used therapeutic options.
FcγRIIB: a modulator of cell activation and humoral tolerance
TLDR
This review will focus on IgG-dependent immune responses and discuss how the inhibitory receptor FcγRIIB may be involved in regulating both the afferent and efferent phases of such a response.
Fcγ receptor biology and systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
In this review, it is detailed how dysfunction in FcγR pathways is linked to the development of the autoimmune disease, systemic lupus erythematosus.
Low-affinity Fcγ receptors, autoimmunity and infection
TLDR
The role of the low-affinity F cγRs in a balanced immune response and how perturbations in FcγR function result in susceptibility to infection or autoimmunity are discussed.
The role of Fcγ receptors in atherosclerosis
TLDR
This review summarizes recent significant progress addressing the multifaceted roles of Fcγ Rs in atherogenesis which comes from the studies of F cγ R-deficient animal models, clinical investigations and in vitro molecular and cellular studies, and suggests Fcαγ Rs as a potential therapeutic target for atherosclerosis.
Antibody‐mediated modulation of immune responses
TLDR
This review focuses on the current models of how IgG molecules can have this diverse array of activities, and examines how antibodies of the immunoglobulin G isotype play a crucial role in this cascade of reactions.

TLDR
An overview of the mechanisms of FcR-based immune regulation is provided and how autoimmune disease might result from its dysfunction is described.
Inflammation in autoimmunity: receptors for IgG revisited.
Fc receptors and their interaction with complement in autoimmunity.
Antibodies, Fc receptors and cancer.
Activating and inhibitory FcγRs in autoimmune disorders
TLDR
Analysis of murine model systems provides strong evidence that aberrant FcR expression can result in uncontrolled immune responses and the initiation of autoimmune disease and how this information might be used to better understand human autoimmune diseases and to develop novel therapeutic strategies.
Anti-inflammatory activity of IVIG mediated through the inhibitory Fc receptor.
TLDR
Protection was associated with the ability of IVIG administration to induce surface expression of FcgammaRIIB on splenic macrophages, and modulation of inhibitory signaling is a potent therapeutic strategy for attenuating autoantibody-triggered inflammatory diseases.
Divergent roles for Fc receptors and complement in vivo.
TLDR
The results lead to the surprising conclusion that these two systems have evolved distinct functions in host immunity, with complement and its receptors mediating the interaction of natural antibodies with pathogens to effect protection, while FcRs coupleThe interaction of IgG antibodies to effector cells to trigger inflammatory sequelae.
