Human Cerebrospinal Fluid Immunology

Historically, antibodies (Abs) were regarded simply as γ-globulins, a class plasma proteins with the least electrophoretic mobility (migrating near t cathode). However, this heterogenous group of proteins migrates as a bro band. Not all γ-globulins are Abs and not all Abs are γ-globulins. Toda all proteins that function as Abs, or that have antigenic determinants in common with Abs, are collectively called immunoglobulins (Igs).
