Antibody Fc

Antibody Fc is the first single text to synthesize the literature on the mechanisms underlying the dramatic variability of antibodies to influence the immune response. The book demonstrates the importance of the Fc domain, including protective mechanisms, effector cell types, genetic data, and variability in Fc domain function. This volume is a critical single-source reference for researchers in vaccine discovery, immunologists, microbiologists, oncologists and protein engineers as well as graduate students in immunology and vaccinology. Antibodies represent the correlate of protection for numerous vaccines and are the most rapidly growing class of drugs, with applications ranging from cancer and infectious disease to autoimmunity. Researchers have long understood the variable domain of antibodies, which are responsible for antigen recognition, and can provide protection by blocking the function of their target antigen. However, recent developments in our understanding of the protection mediated by antibodies have highlighted the critical nature of the antibody constant, or Fc domain, in the biological activity of antibodies. The Fc domain allows antibodies to link the adaptive and innate immune systems, providing specificity to a wide range of innate effector cells. In addition, they provide a feedback loop to regulate the character of the immune response via interactions with B cells and antigen-presenting cells. Clarifies the different mechanisms of IgG activity at the level of the different model systems used, including human genetic, mouse, and in vitro Covers the role of antibodies in cancer, infectious disease, and autoimmunity and in the setting of monoclonal antibody therapy as well as naturally raised antibodies Color illustrations enhance explanations of the immune system

Antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), also called antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity, is an immune mechanism through which Fc receptor-bearing effector cells can recognize and kill antibody-coated target cells expressing tumor- or pathogen-derived antigens on their surface. Numerous associations between ADCC activity, Fc receptor polymorphisms, and clinical outcomes have been observed in both the settings of vaccination and monoclonal antibody therapy. Here, the effector cells and receptors involved in ADCC are introduced, followed by a description of the four main stages and mechanisms

Immunoglobulins (Igs, antibodies) are key players in adaptive immunity, and pathways mediated through the effector Fc portion of Ig are instrumental in controlling bacterial infections. Therefore, it is not very surprising that bacterial pathogens and commensals through co-evolution with their hosts have learned many tricks to interfere with Fc effector functions. In this chapter, we describe three principally different bacterial strategies to interfere with immunoglobulins: Specific Ig binding, specific or unspecific Ig protelolysis, and, finally, specific and unspecific hydrolysis of

This volume explores several aspects of how antibodies mediate their activity in vivo, ranging from cancer immunotherapy to autoimmunity, infection, and vaccination. Divided into seven chapters, it provides in-depth insights into how antibodies and especially the antibody fragment crystallizable (Fc) domain modulate immune responses and antibody activity. The book begins by discussing evolutionary aspects of how the family of Fc receptors that are the key molecules for antibody activity evolved. In turn, it addresses the molecular and cellular pathways underlying

Immunoglobulins are a group of closely related glycoproteins composed of 82 to 96% protein and 4 to 18% carbohydrate. In humans, there are five classes of immunoglobulins, which differ in heavy-chain structure. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the major class of immunoglobulins in blood and can be further subdivided in subclasses. The four subclasses of IgG were discovered in the 1960s following extensive studies using specific rabbit antisera against human IgG myeloma proteins.1 They are designated IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4, in order of decreasing

The antibody Fc region is posttranslationally modified by N-linked glycosylation. In immunoglobulin G (IgG), the processing of the glycans is restricted by the presence of extensive interaction with the protein surface. The resulting set of antibody glycoforms exhibit a range of effector functions. In this chapter, we outline the impact of glycosylation on the immune function of antibodies and discuss the implications for monoclonal antibody and intravenous immunoglobulin therapies.

Diversity of antigen-binding specificity may be considered the hallmark of antibodies; however, the human IgG-Fc region also exhibits binding specificity for multiple ligands. Evolution of the IgG-Fc has resulted in the generation of interaction sites for endogenous (self) ligands that recruit and activate mechanisms facilitating the removal and destruction of antibody–pathogen immune complexes. However, pathogens (bacteria and virus) have co-evolved to elaborate IgG-Fc binding proteins that seek to subvert these protective mechanisms. The four human IgG subclasses exhibit differential

IgG antibodies are highly potent molecules, with the unique ability to link foreign particles to innate immune cells. IgG antibodies recognize antigens with high affinity and bind cellular Fc receptors with low affinity individually. These interactions occur in the form of immune complexes, resulting in high-avidity interactions. In fact, the effector functions triggered by IgG antibodies are highly dependent on the type of Fc receptor that is bound; however, many aspects can influence Fc receptor binding by IgG antibodies, including

Molecular mechanisms of antibody-mediated Fc receptor activation have long been an interest in both Fc receptor biology and antibody therapeutics. The structural efforts to elucidate antibody recognition by Fc receptors have led to the generation of several crystal structures of antibody Fc fragments complexed with Fc receptors. Collectively, these structures revealed a conserved receptor binding mode for IgG and IgE, distinct from those for the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn), protein A, and protein G. Fcγ receptor recognition in the lower
