Abstract Abstract: Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is the major class of antibody secreted by the gut mucosa, where it contributes to barrier function by preventing microbial and food antigens from interacting with host tissues1,2. The lack of metrics for quantifying development of the gut microbiota and mucosal immu .. [more]
