Immunoglobulin G (IgG)

Geis illustrates the structure of an antibody, immunoglobulin G (IgG), which was first revealed by X-ray crystallography in 1977 (Silverton et al., 1978). His depiction was published in Biochemistry by Donald Voet and Judith G. Voet as Figure 34-15 on page 1099 of the textbook (Voet & Voet, 1990).
