General term for an immunoglobulin.
(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) Complex protein which is capable of recognising and eliminating foreign particles in the body, such as bacteria and viruses.
Specialised proteins produced by the immune system in response to a foreign substance or body. Antibodies may facilitate destruction of the foreign substance or render it harmless.
(Humans as organisms) protein produced by the body's immune system that attacks foreign invaders (antigens)
A specific protein manufactured by an organism's immune system to counteract the effect of an antigen (a foreign substance). It confers immunity against subsequent infection, in some instances permanently, in others for a limited period (see also antigen).
is a protein substance in the blood produced by the immune system or tissues in response to a specific antigen that destroys or weakens bacteria and neutralizes organic poisons, thus forming the basis of immunity.Found on http://www.skincarenet.org/skin-glossary.html
