  • Teaching the structure immunoglobulins by molecular visualization and SDS-PAGE analysis
    Lanišnik-Rižner, Tea
    This laboratory class combines molecular visualization and laboratory experimentation to teach the structure of the immunoglobulins (Ig). In the first part of the class, the three-dimensional ... structures of the human IgG and IgM molecules available through the RCSB PDB database are visualized using freely available software. In the second part, IgG and IgM are studied using electrophoretic methods. Through SDS-PAGE analysis under reducing conditions, the students determine the number and molecular masses of the polypeptide chains, while through SDS-PAGE under nonreducing conditions, the students assess the oligomerization of these Ig molecules. The aims of this class are to expand upon the knowledge and understanding of the Ig structure that the students have gained from classroom lectures. The combination of this molecular visualization of the Ig molecules and the SDS-PAGE experimentation ensures variety in the teaching techniques, while the implication of the Ig molecules in human disease promotes interest for biomedical students.
