Memorizing Immunoglobulins ” Types of antibodies “

Immunoglobulins

Antibodies ” immunoglobulinsΒ  😎 ” are protein molecules produced by our immune system to detect and attack the foreign weird antigens :alien: ,

” Antigen – antibody ” reactions are very famous in biological , medical & analytical fields,

So it’s important to fully understand the basics of immunology πŸ™‚

Β 

this post is concerned with memorizing the different types of immunoglobulins ” Ig “s πŸ˜‰

Further details about their nature and functions could be discussed later in upcoming posts ..

the Original name of this little hero is Captain Tsubasa (キャプテン翼) >> Japanese Manga cartoons rock 😎

but in Egypt we have a translated version of this cartoon where the Hero’s name is Maged :happy:

this word ” Maged ” sums up all immunoglobulin types in a nice way :

Β 

>>> IgM , IgA , IgG , IgE , IgD <<<

[tip]

Immunoglobulins are made of Heavy and light chains ,.. the heavy ones determine each type :

IgM – Mu (Β΅) heavy chains
IgA – Alpha (Ξ±) heavy chains
IgG – Gamma (Ξ³) heavy chains
IgE – Epsilon (Ξ΅) heavy chains

IgD – Delta (Ξ΄) heavy chains

[/tip]

another cool thing that ” MAGED ” offers , is an easy memorization of the shapes of Immunoglobulins πŸ™‚

M = 5 units

AΒ  = 1 , 2 or 3 units …Β Most often 2 >>> and it’s letter No. 2 in the word also πŸ˜‰ “

G E D = 1 unit each


Mmmm ..

if we mix the letters again … make the word Damge >>> Damage :silly:

that’s the Antibodies job after all 😎 ! … causing damage to foreign bodies & prevent them from damaging our own bodies πŸ™‚

Try mixing the letters in different ways and make a meaningful word ” any language ” … we’d love it ifΒ  you share it here with us :happy:
