Caption: Antibody response, conceptual image. Computer artwork representing immunoglobulin (Ig) molecules (red and yellow) responding to a pathogen. Each Y-shaped molecule has two arms (top) that can bind to specific antigens, for instance bacterial or 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.
