What is the main difference between Kappa (κ) and lambda (λ) light chains in an immunoglobulin?

Each clone produces either kappa or lambda light chains, and not both.

How many antigen binding sites are found on a B cell receptor (BCR) in its normal arrangement?


Which of the following is a correct statement about T Cell Receptors (TCRs)?

TCRs recognize peptides only when bound to MHC molecules.

What is the main function of B Cell Receptors (BCRs) in the humoral immune system?

Have broad specificity to recognize diverse antigens.

Which protein mediates signal transduction for T Cell Receptors (TCRs)?

CD3 and zeta proteins

What would be the result of a cross-reaction between an antibody and an antigen?

The antibody binds to a structurally similar but different antigen.

An original is related to a clone in the same way that a collection is related to:
