anti-Immunoglobulin A (IgA) secondary antibodies

plays a role in mucosal immunity and is produced in mucosal linings. Hence can be found in mucous secretions, including tears, saliva, colostrum, secretions from the gastrointestinal tract, and others, but it is found only in small amounts in blood.

There are two isotypes, (90%) and (10%), with being found in serum and produced in bone marrow B cells, and , being secreted into colostrum, maternal milk, tears and saliva. can exist as a monomer or in a dimeric form called secretory (sIgA). The secretory consists of polymers of two monomers linked by additional so-called J-chains and a secretory component that is wrapped around the dimer in order to protect it from proteolytic digestion in the intestinal tract.
