Part Description

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.
