Fc Protein and Glyco-engineered Antibodies Market

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of Fc Protein and Glyco-engineered Antibodies Market report to its list of offerings. Overview - Antibodies, also known as immunoglobulins, are Y-shaped glycoproteins that are produced by the immune system in response to foreign molecules (antigens) that enter the body.[1] The term antigen refers to any substance that is capable of inducing an immune response; examples include viruses, fungi, bacteria, proteins on the surface of cells, and non-living substances, such as toxins, chemicals and foreign particles. Once developed, these antibodies can protect an individual from getting affected after re-infection by a certain pathogen. To request a sample copy / brochure of this report, please visit this – https://www.rootsanalysis.com/reports/fc-protein-engineered-and-glycoengineered-antibodies-market/request-sample.html The Fc region of an antibody interacts with the Fc receptors and a few proteins of the complement system enabling the antibodies to activate the immune system. Advances in biotechnology have enabled researchers to alter the above-mentioned functions of the Fc region of an antibody in order to direct specific functions for use in various applications. For instance, the ADCC mechanism can be enhanced to improve antibody-mediated tumor cell killing. This can be achieved by increasing the binding strength between the Fc region of the antibody and the FcγR. It is possible to achieve such modifications through the introduction of site directed mutations in the contact residues or through the ablation of fucosylation of the Fc region. This research on the interaction between Fc region and Fc receptors has paved a new potential for the design of next generation therapeutic antibodies. Activation of phagocytosis, also called ADCP, is the most common function of the Fc receptors, along with ADCC and CDC.
