About Protein-A, A/G & G:

Protein-A is a protein that is found in the blood. This protein is found in the A/G gene. The G gene codes for Protein-A and is found on chromosome 4.

Protein-A Function
Protein-A binds to the Fc region of an immunoglobulin (Ig) G antibody, and therefore, it is a mediator of humoral immunity. It also binds to IgM antibodies, and thereby, it functions as a stimulator of cell-mediated immunity.

Protein-A, A/G & G Interaction
The protein-A A/G and G interact well with the D-galactose. The protein-A A/G and G are in the beta territory of the cell membrane. Protein-A A/G and G are in the beta territory of the cell membrane. The two proteins interact well with each other, and together they form a surface that can bind to lipopolysaccharides on the surface of bacteria.
The A protein binds to lipopolysaccharides on the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, while Protein G binds to lipopolysaccharides on the inner membrane of Gram-positive bacteria.

Protein-A Structure
The antibody binding site is the site that is typically exposed. It binds to antibodies directed against Protein-A. The antigen bounding site is not exposed when Protein-A is on the cell surface, but it can be if it detaches from the cell. Protein-G's name comes from its two binding sites: one for Protein G and one for a variety of antigens, such as sugars and bacterial carbohydrates.

Protein-A, A/G & G Mechanism
The mechanism of Protein-A is to bind to IgM and IgG antibodies in order for the B-cells to be activated. This process is how we produce antibodies to fight off an infection. The G mechanism is a reaction that occurs when cells are activated by an antigen, and it causes cytokine production.
