IgG, Human Plasma
Purified from normal serum by immobilized Protein A. IgG is the most abundant immunoglobulin in plasma, found at a concentration of 8 to 18 mg/ml. This immunoglobulin plays a very important role in the defense against infection for newborns because of its transfer through the placenta during pregnancy. It readily diffuses into the extravascular body spaces where it plays a major role in neutralizing bacterial toxins and in enhancing the phagocytosis of microorganisms. IgG binds to bacteria and these complexes adhere to phagocytic cells which have surface receptors specific for IgG. Prepared from serum shown to be non reactive for HbsAG, anti-HCV, anti-HBc, and negative for anti-HIV 1 & 2 by FDA approved tests. >95percent pure by SDS-PAGE.
