How many antibodies are produced?
The variable region of the heavy chain differs in antibodies produced by different B cells, but is the same for all antibodies produced by a single B cell or B cell clone. The variable region of each heavy chain is approximately 110 amino acids long and is composed of a single Ig domain.
How are primary antibodies produced?
MAbs are produced from a single B-cell clone of an animal and hence are directed against only one epitope of an antigen. PAbs are produced from multiple B-cell clones of an animal, and have a heterogeneous mix of antibodies that are directed against several epitopes of an antigen
