About Antibody

Antibodies are produced by a kind of white blood cells called plasma cell. They have "Y-shaped" structure shown in this movie.

They bind to the "antigen" expressed on the target cells through their "binding domain". Each antibody molecule binds to its specific antigen.

Our immune system can be activated by "antibody-antigen complex" to eliminate the targets. Antibodies play an important role in our immune system.
