This maternal IgG also provides protection for the neonate, because it takes some weeks following birth before the transferred IgG is eventually all catabolized. into the external body fluids after cleavage of the polyIg receptor peptide chain. 10). The function of the secretory component may be to protect the IgA hinge from bacterial proteases. It may also serve to anchor IgA to the soluble mucus acting as molecular Teflon to inhibit the adherence of coated microorganisms to the surface of mucosal cells, thereby preventing entry into the body tissues.
