ⓘ Immunoglobulin light chain

The immunoglobulin light chain is the small polypeptide subunit of an antibody.

A typical antibody consists of two heavy immunoglobulin chains and two IG light chains iG.

                                     
  • Immunoglobulin light chains that are circulating in serum in a free unbound state are called free light chains FLCs Measurement of the serum level
  • A light chain is the small polypeptide subunit of a protein complex. More specifically, it can refer to: Immunoglobulin light chain Ferritin light chain
  • antibody is composed of two immunoglobulin Ig heavy chains and two Ig light chains Several different types of heavy chain exist that define the class
  • requirements for features of interest. Immunoglobulins include light chains and heavy chains The light chain λ or κ is a protein of 220 amino acids
  • have immunoglobulin M IgM and immunoglobulin W IgW as well, both types with two heavy and two light chains The only mammals with heavy - chain IgG - like
  • Immunoglobulin lambda locus, also known as IGL is a region on human chromosome 22 that contains genes for the lambda light chains of antibodies or
  • infection - fighting immunoglobulins called light chains LCs in the body. LCs are normally cleared by the kidneys, but in LCDD, these light chain deposits damage
  • Immunoglobulin kappa locus, also known as IGK is a region on human chromosome 2 that contains genes for the kappa κ light chains of antibodies or
  • Immunoglobulin A IgA, also referred to as sIgA in its secretory form is an antibody that plays a crucial role in the immune function of mucous membranes
  • heavy chain protein. The kappa κ and lambda λ chains of the immunoglobulin light chain loci rearrange in a very similar way, except that the light chains
