What is the function of an antibody in an antigen-antibody response?
to ingest and digest the antigen
to help immune cells identify and destroy a pathogen
to enclose the antigen in a protective shell
to remove the DNA of the antigen
he function of an antibody in an antigen-antibody response is C. [ to enclose the antigen in a protective shell/Antibodies have the main job of flagging foreign bodies by connecting to the antigens on the pathogen surface, they do not destroy it however. They alert Macrophages (a form of phagocyte) to engulf the pathogen enclosing it into a pathogenic vacuole and lysosymes containing digestive
enzymes fuse into the vacuole. This leads to the eventual immunity of a specific pathogen. ]
