Antibody Structure Problem Set
Problem 5. Antibody/antigen binding
Tutorial to help answer the question
Glutamine 121 protrudes away from the surface of the antigen. The exposed residue can fit into a depression in the antibody. Association leads to the formation of __________ between antigen and antibody?
Multiple weak interactions between the antibody and antigen create a strong binding affinity. The orientation of the antibody's amino acids maximizes hydrogen bonding between the antigen and the antibody.
