Humans have developed a highly specialized defense mechanism system due to continuous stimulation by foreign material from the environment. Immunoglobulins are unique structures in the body which is synthesized by plasma cells and, to some extent, by lymphocytes. They have a significant role in recognizing and protecting the body against foreign material, either present freely in the body fluids or attached to cell surfaces. Besides the plasma, immunoglobulins may be identified in other body fluids or tissues such as urine, spinal fluid, milk, saliva, tears, lymph nodes, and spleen. The plasma cells and lymphocytes produce immunoglobulins at various stages of differentiation. Immunoglobulins represent a heterogeneous population to their Physico-chemical and biological properties. Immunoglobulins are divided into five classes IgG, IgA, IgM, IgD, and IgE, which are classified based on H chains.
