The results of antibody-antigen binding include neutralization, immobilization and prevention of adherence, agglutination and precipitation, opsonization, complement activation, and antibody-dependent cytotoxicity. Immunoglobulin classes include IgM, IgG, IgA, IgD, and IgE.
■ Why is IgM particularly effective at agglutinating antigens?
■ Which two maternal antibody classes protect a newborn that is breast-fed?
■ In opsonization with IgG, why would it be important that IgG react with the antigen before a phagocytic cell recognizes the antibody molecule?
