IgA antibody (human) | monomeric IgA antibody (human)
An IgA immunoglobulin complex, circulating composed of two identical immunoglobulin heavy chains of the secretory isoform of the IgA2 isotype and two identical immunoglobulin light chains (kappa or lambda), held together by disulfide bonds, sometimes complexed with J chain or J chain and secretory component, and present in the extracellular space, in mucosal areas or other tissues, or circulating in the blood or lymph.

IgA2 heavy chain protein, secretory isoform (human)
An IgA2 heavy chain protein, secretory isoform that is encoded in the genome of human. This is a translation product of an IgA2 mRNA polyadenylated at a site 5' to the membrane exons, thus preventing their incorporation the final spliced mRNA.
