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

First blog post

So just a little bit about me to get started…. I’m Anna and I like antibodies!

I enjoy having a social media presence as well as a bowl of porridge, I don’t like human contact but love to blog, on my own, in the dark. I’m from Laois.
