IgE is distinguished from other antibody classes (IgM, IgD, IgG and IgA) by its ε heavy chains. IgE’s main function is immunity to parasites such as helminths like Schistosoma mansoni, Trichinella spiralis, and Fasciola hepatica. It is also utilized during immune defense against certain protozoan parasites such as Plasmodium falciparum. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is the antibody that plays a central role in the mechanisms of allergic diseases such as asthma, anaphylactic reactions to drugs, bee stings, and antigen preparations used in desensitization immunotherapy (Luker et al., 2019). If you have an allergy, your immune system overreacts to an allergen by producing IgE antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. This reaction usually causes symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, or on the skin. The fragment crystallizable region (Fc region) is the tail region of an antibody that interacts with cell surface receptors called Fc receptors and some proteins of the complement system. This property allows antibodies to activate the immune system. IgE Fc regions contain three heavy chain constant domains (CH domains 2–4) in each polypeptide chain (Sutton et al., 2019).
Recombinant human IgE can be used as reference for IgE concentration measurements in biological samples (e.g. ELISA, FACS).
