"The antibody recognizes a unique part of the foreign target, called an antigen ."
1 (1)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"
"Each tip of the "Y" of an antibody contains a paratope (a structure analogous to a lock) that is specific for one particular epitope (similarly analogous to a key) on an antigen, allowing these two structures to bind together with precision."
1 (1)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"
"Using this binding mechanism, an antibody can tag a microbe or an infected cell for attack by other parts of the immune system, or can neutralize its target directly (for example, by blocking a part of a microbe that is essential for its invasion and survival)."

0 (0)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"
"The BCR is only found on the surface of B cells and facilitates the activation of these cells and their subsequent differentiation into either antibody factories called plasma cells , or memory B cells that will survive in the body and remember that same antigen so the B cells can respond faster upon future exposure."
0 (0)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"

"This enormous diversity of antibodies allows the immune system to recognize an equally wide variety of antigens."
0 (0)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"
"The large and diverse population of antibodies is generated by random combinations of a set of gene segments that encode different antigen binding sites (or paratopes), followed by random mutations in this area of the antibody gene, which create further diversity."
0 (0)
"Q33"
"how are antibodies used in"
"antibody"
"Antibody genes also re-organize in a process called class switching that changes the base of the heavy chain to another, creating a different isotype of the antibody that retains the antigen specific variable region."
