Abbreviation for immunoglobulin G.

IgG

Immunoglobulin class G. This antibody accounts for three quarters of the immunoglobulins in the blood of healthy people. It is widely distributed in the tissues and is the only immunoglobulin class that passes through the placenta to the fetus. It is concerned with protection against a wide range of infecting organisms. Note that the term gamma globulin refers to the whole class of immunoglobulins, not simply to IgG.
