Antibodies, or immunoglobulins, are the key element of humoral immunity. They are the molecular adaptor proteins that couple the specific adaptive humoral response to the non-antigen specific effector cell response. Even after decades of intense research, much is still unclear about the interaction between antibodies and their receptors on effector cells, and which factors influence the outcomes of this interaction. Helga Einarsdóttir focuses on how maternal antibodies are transported during pregnancy across the placenta, providing the fetus with humoral immunity for the first few months after birth, but also on how subtle differences in the antibody structure can affect the course of events following antibody receptor ligation.
