Part Descriptions

LP14669-3   IgA
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is a glycoprotein that plays a critical role in mucosal immunity. More IgA is produced in mucosal linings than all other immunoglobulins (IgG,IgM,IgE), combined; between 3 and 5g are secreted into the intestinal lumen each day. IgA, in its secretory form, is the main immunoglobulin found in mucous secretions, including tears, saliva, colostrum, intestinal juice, vaginal fluid and secretions from the prostate and respiratory epithelium. It is also found in small amounts in blood. Because it is resistant to degradation by enzymes, secretory IgA can survive in harsh environments such as the digestive and respiratory tracts, thus providing a first line of defense against pathogens that multiply in body secretions.

LP6336-4   Immunofixation
Plasma or concentrated urine is deposited on a gel. With an electrical current the proteins are sorted in function of their size, after which antigens for each targeted type of immunoglobulin are deposited on the gel. Thus more or less narrow bands appear on the gel, marking the location of the various immunoglobulines.
Immunofixation tends to replace protein electrophoresis because:

• it is faster (results within three hours);
• it is somewhat more sensitive. Immunofixation may reveal an immunoglobulin missed out by protein electrophoresis, especially at low concentrations (less than 1 gram/litre);
• it can be partially automated and can be used in more laboratories;
• it is more easily read and interpreted.

Immunofixation is however only sensitive to immunoglobulins and is more expensive than protein electrophoresis. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ for details. Source: Wikipedia, Immunofixation
