IgM

So I thought I would begin with a blog post about IgM, mainly because it is my personal favourite.

So basically, Immunoglobulin M, or IgM for short, is a basic antibody that is produced by B cells. IgM is by far the physically largest antibody in the human circulatory system. It is the first antibody to appear in response to initial exposure to an antigen.

So yeah, that’s all for now folks, stay tuned for more fascinating facts…

Next week, I’ll be covering IgG!220px-igm_scheme-svg
