Caption: Computer artwork of an antibody or immunoglobulin molecule (blue) attacking an infected cell. The y-shaped antibody molecule have two arms that can bind to specific antigens, for instance viral proteins. In doing this they mark the antigen for destruction by phagocytes, white blood cells that ingest and destroy foreign bodies. Antibodies can also kill some pathogens directly and can neutralise toxins..
