Affinity and Avidity of Antibodies
Immunoassays are laboratory techniques based on the detection of antibody production in response to foreign antigens. Immunology is the study of molecules, cells, and organs that make up the immune system. The function of the immune system is to recognize self antigens from non-self antigens and defend the body against non-self foreign agents. The first line of defense against infection is intact skin, mucosal membrane surfaces, and secretions that prevent pathogens from penetrating into the body. When a foreign agent penetrates the first line of resistance, an immune reaction is elicited and immune cells are recruited into the site of infection to clear microorganisms and damaged cells by phagocytosis.
Antigen Antibody Interactions Principles and Applications
Agglutination reactions are used to assess the presence of antibodies in a specimen by mixing it with particulate antigens. Agglutination is the visible expression of the aggregation of antigens and antibodies. Agglutination reactions apply to particulate test antigens that have been conjugated to a carrier. The carrier could be artificial such as latex or charcoal particles or biological such as red blood cells. These conjugated particles are reacted with patient serum presumably containing antibodies. The endpoint of the test is the observation of clumps resulting from that antigen-antibody complex formation.

12.2E: Agglutination Reactions
Antigen-antibody interaction, or antigen-antibody reaction , is a specific chemical interaction between antibodies produced by B cells of the white blood cells and antigens during immune reaction. The antigens and antibodies combine by a process called agglutination. It is the fundamental reaction in the body by which the body is protected from complex foreign molecules, such as pathogens and their chemical toxins.
Protocol DOI: Antigen—antibody interaction. Antigen—antibody interactions are a special class of protein—protein interactions that are characterized by high affinity and strict specificity of antibodies towards their antigens. Several co-crystal structures of antigen—antibody complexes have been solved and are available in the Protein Data Bank PDB. AgAbDb is a derived knowledgebase developed with an objective to compile, curate, and analyze determinants of interactions between the respective antigen—antibody molecules. AgAbDb lists not only the residues of binding sites of antigens and antibodies, but also interacting residue pairs.
