Antibodies of different class in blood of different species. - (Feb/11/2006 )
Does anyone have information on contents of antibodies of different class (IgG, IgE, IgM etc.) in blood of different species (humans, rabbits, mice, rats etc.)? Best would be m/v (mg/L etc.) or % of total protein (or globulin).
contents of antibodies of different class (IgG, IgE, IgM etc.) in blood of humans in % of total serum antibodies.
IgG makes up approximately 80% of the serum antibodies.
IgA makes up approximately 6% of the serum antibodies.
IgD makes up approximately 0.2% of the serum antibodies.
IgE makes up about 0.002% of the serum antibodies.
IgM makes up approximately 13% of the serum antibodies.
for further details:
I just found values for human:
IgG - 1250 (700-1750) mg / 100 ml
IgA - 210 (90-450) mg / 100 ml
IgM - 140 (65-260) mg / 100 ml
IgD - 3 (0,3-40,0) mg / 100 ml
IgE - 0,03 (0,006-0,6) mg / 100 ml
Values for rabbit would be even more useful since I use them, not humans, as source of antibodies...
