Autoimmunity, Immune Response, Infection and Inflammation
Secretory IgA is comprised of two immunglobuline A molecules, which are joined by a J-protein and a secretory component. The secretory component is synthesized by epithelial cells of the mucous membrane of gastrointestinal, respiratory and urogenitaltract. It is also produced by the saliva, tear and mammary glands. The plasma cells in the subendothelial area of mucous membranes are releasing a complex of two IgA-molecules, which are joined over the J-protein. This complex is binding to a secretory component, located at the surface of the epithel cell. After binding, the sIgA is transported across the cell and excreted by exocytosis. The determination of secretory IgA (sIgA) allows a first overview of the functionality of the gastrointestinal associated immune system (GALT). At this the secretory power and the degree of stimulation of the plasma cells of the intestinal submucosa is determined.
