Chemical Immunoglobulin Idiotypes

Name Immunoglobulin Idiotypes
Equivalent Terms Idiotype, Immunoglobulin | Idiotypes, Immunoglobulin | Immunoglobulin Idiotype
Definition Unique genetically-controlled determinants present on ANTIBODIES whose specificity is limited to a single group of proteins (e.g., another antibody molecule or an individual myeloma protein). The idiotype appears to represent the antigenicity of the antigen-binding site of the antibody and to be genetically codetermined with it. The idiotypic determinants have been precisely located to the IMMUNOGLOBULIN VARIABLE REGION of both immunoglobin polypeptide chains.
