1. Dendritic cells, a specialized APC, capture the antigen and present it to T lymphocytes by its long processes for antigen recognition. 4 Cell Network and the Immune System 15 Structurally similar to Immunoglobulins (similar to a single Fab fragment). TCR: Antigen recognition(Epitope binding site) One T cell expresses only one specific type of TCR. Variable region Composed of two glycoprotein chains (a/b or g/d). Most mature T cells have TCRs composed of tan a chain and a b chain (a/b T cells).
M. Edelman and R. R. Porter were awarded the Nobel Prize (1972) for discovering the structure of the antibody molecule. Generally, all immunoglobulins have a similar Y-shaped overall structure consisting of two polypeptides: heavy chain (higher molecular weight) and light chain (lower molecular weight). Typically, an antibody molecule is composed of two heavy and two light chains that are held together by both covalent (disulfide bonds) and non-covalent forces. There are two types of light chains, κ (kappa) and λ (lambda), and five types of heavy chains, α (alpha), δ (delta), € (epsilon), γ (gamma), and μ (mu) (Fig.
