  • Antibody from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - An antibody is a large Y-shaped protein used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects like bacteria and viruses. Each antibody recognizes a specific antigen unique to its target.

  • Mike's Immunoglobulin Structure/Function Home Page - These webpages on immunoglobulin structure and function have been prepared by Mike Clark, PhD, Cambridge University, Cambridge UK. The pages here stem from my own academic teaching and research interests in immunoglobulin structure and function. My intention is to continue to develop them as a resource not only for my own use but also as a reference source for students and researchers with a similar interest in immunoglobulins. However you should be aware that I exercise my full right to copyright over the material that I have produced.

  • CELLS Alive - CELLS alive! represents 30 years of capturing film and computer-enhanced images of living cells and organisms for education and medical research. The site has been available continuously and updated annually since May of 1994 and now hosts over 4 million visitors a year. All text, images, and layout are provided by me, Jim Sullivan (resumé) shown here with Boo and Bella. Every effort has been made to minimize errors or typos, but any you find on these pages are my doing as well.

  • Graphics Gallery - Graphics Gallery is a series of labeled diagrams with explanations representing the important processes of biotechnology. Each diagram is followed by a summary of information, providing a context for the process illustrated.

  • AHo's Amazing Atlas of Antibody Anatomy - You are welcome to inspect the building site and see what useful information you can dig up. If the result looks promising, check back frequently to see what progress the site is making.

  • IBC Life Sciences is the worldwide leader in scientific, technological and business conferences and courses for the life science industry.

  • Max Animations - genetics animations, biochemistry animations, immunology animations, physiology animations, microbiology animations.

  • HIV Antibody Assays (HIV InSite Knowledge Base Chapter May 2006 By Niel Constantine, PhD, University of Maryland School of Medicine) - An arsenal of laboratory methods is available to screen blood, diagnose infection, and monitor disease progression in individuals infected by HIV. These tests can be classified into those that: 1) detect antibody, 2) identify antigen, 3) detect or monitor viral nucleic acids, and 4) provide an estimate of T-lymphocyte numbers (cell phenotyping). The focus of this discussion is on antibody detection, the most widely used and, in most situations, most effective way to identify HIV infection.

  • Antibody Theory - The antibody business: Millions of screening tests are distributed, each blood sample needs to be tested (4 millions in Germany alone).

  • The Immune System - The immune system protects the body against infections by bacteria, viruses and other parasites.  It is really a collection of responses that the body makes to infection.  So it is sometimes called the 'immune response'.

  • Human Protein Atlas - The human protein atlas displays expression and localization of proteins in a large variety of normal human tissues and cancer cells. The data is publically available and presented as high resolution images of immunohistochemically stained tissues and cell lines. Available proteins can be reached through searches for specific genes or by browsing individual chromosomes.

  • Flow Cytometry on the Web - This is the flow cytometry WWW links list located at the Salk Institute CCMI, La Jolla, California.

  • Protocol Online - Database of research protocols in bioscience including molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, plant biology, developmental biology, neuroscience.

  • Apoptosis and Cell Death Portal - Covers recent literature, a Apoptosis lab registry, links, Apoptosis databases, jobs and much more.

  • Biology Online - Welcome to Biology Online, a choice source for biological information, ideal for homework, research projects and general interest. The site is currently separated into four main areas, each offering a different way for you to look up biological information.
