GO:0042571 immunoglobulin complex, circulating

Term Information

ID GO:0042571
Name immunoglobulin complex, circulating
Ontology Cellular Component
Definition An immunoglobulin complex that is secreted into extracellular space and found in mucosal areas or other tissues or circulating in the blood or lymph. In its canonical form, a circulating immunoglobulin complex is composed of two identical heavy chains and two identical light chains, held together by disulfide bonds. Some forms of are polymers of the basic structure and contain additional components such as J-chain and the secretory component.
Comment Note that an immunoglobulin complex has the function of antigen binding if a suitable antigen is available.
