Antibodies

  • Definition: Protein (immunoglobulins) in cell surfaces and dissolved in blood or tissue fluid, capable of combining with the antigens that stimulated their production. Formation of antibody-antigen complexes immobilize invading organisms, which can then be removed by phagocytosis of the complexes (opsonization).
