Caption: Viral recognition by antibodies. Computer artwork of rabies (family Rhabdoviridae) virus particles (virions, pink) being identified by monoclonal antibodies (Y-shaped, blue). The rabies virus is transmitted to man from infected animal bites. Antibodies, or immunoglobulin, molecules have two arms that can bind to specific antigens, for instance viral or bacterial 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.
