Regulation of antibody production mediated by Fc gamma receptors, IgG binding factors, and IgG Fc-binding autoantibodies.


Fc receptors (FcRs) are immunoglobulin-binding structures that enable antibodies to perform a variety of functions by forming connections between specific recognition and effector cells. Besides eliciting cytotoxicity, inducing secretion of mediators and endocytosis of opsonized particles, FcRs are involved in the regulation of antibody production, both as… (More)
