Term Definition
Antibody
A protein created by white blood cells as part of the immune response to a foreign body. Antibodies bind specifically to proteins on the cell surface of invading cells. This process underlies tissue rejection. Further viruses and other, substances are recognized. Stereoselective antibodies also serve as chiral selectors, e.g. in bioanalysis of chiral drugs.
