Sorry, no etymologies found.
A lot of organisms already possess extra constant regions that can be expressed through alternative splicing i.e. the delta region, or IgD
The naming of the long chains forms the bases for the names of the five so called immunoglobulin classes: IgM, IgD, IgG and so on.
IgD: Ab on virgin B-cells www. freelivedoctor.com Soft and very blood rich
This difference contrasted with similar numbers of BM parenchymal Pro-B, Pre-B and immature IgD
Multiple myeloma is characterized by excessive numbers of abnormal plasma cells in the bone marrow and overproduction of intact monoclonal immunoglobulin (IgG, IgA, IgD, or IgE) or Bence-Jones protein (free monoclonal light chains).
− B cells, thus suggesting that BM egress of immature IgD lo cells might be specifically reduced in S1P1-deficient mice.
However, the immunoglobulin isotype repertoire in teleost fish is more limited than in e.g. mouse and humans and consists of only IgM, IgD and a unique fish isotype termed IgT
Given that egress of hematopoietic cells from the BM is thought to occur via BM sinusoids, it was surprising to find that while S1P1-deficient immature-IgD lo cells accumulated in parenchyma, their numbers seemed unaffected in sinusoids.
S1P3 is differentially expressed in developing B cell subsets, being most abundant in immature IgD
Moreover, by this approach we found that the fraction of S1P1-deficient immature IgD Impaired BM egress of S1P1-deficient immature-B cells.
