20×10 9 /L) were randomly assigned to receive either intravenous immunoglobulin or high-dose methyl- prednisolone on days 1—3 (randomisation A), and then to receive either oral prednisone or placebo (randomisation B...
An important factor that influences colostrum quality (immu­noglobulin concentration) is the age of the cow.
There may be more to passive transfer than colostrum quantity, time of feeding and immunoglobulin content.

In science:

The most important part of this protein is the so called PEVK region that is flanked by immunoglobulin domains.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
The immunoglobulin domains are folded parts of the protein.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
These immunoglobulin domains are folded parts of the protein containing approximately 100 amino acids.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
Without applied force, the chain of amino acids of the PEVK region and the chain of immunoglobulin domains behave like random coils.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
Meanwhile, the immunoglobulin domains line up (without unfolding) in the direction of the applied force.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
We consider the PEVK region and the immunoglobulin domains as two completely independent parts of the protein.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
The indices i and p are used for the variables of the immunoglobulin domains and the PEVK region respectively. A similar formula for the entropy of the complete system holds S = Si + Sp .
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
The sign of hi is negative because a folded immunoglobulin domain should be energetically favourable.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
Following parameters can be considered as priors ap = bp = 0.35nm (typical length of one amino acid), ai = 35nm (typical length of an unfolded immunoglobulin domain containing 100 amino acids).
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin
In , phase diagrams of the force-induced unfolding of single-domain proteins (e.g. immunoglobulin domains of titin) are obtained by numerical simulations.
The 3-dimensional random walk with applications to overstretched DNA and the protein titin

The cross-linking of surface immunoglobulin is a necessary but not sufficient condition for switching on B cells to secrete antibody.
