Selective transport of an oligomeric IgA into canine saliva

Immunological Communications
P C MontgomeryG Virella


Evidence is presented which shows that an oligomeric IgA myeloma protein possessing J-chain but lacking secretory component, is selectively transferred from serum into canine saliva. The data also demonstrate that 125I-label remains with the IgA during the transfer process. These data interpreted in the light of findings in humans support the concept that the oligomeric form of IgA, devoid of secretory component, is required to achieve selective transport.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
