3D structure of an IgG immunoglobulin

The 3D structure is from 1igt in IMGT/3Dstructure-DB.

VH corresponds to the V-D-J-REGION (in green (V), orange (DJ)) of the heavy chain.
VL corresponds to the V-J-REGION (in green (V) and yellow (J)) of the light chain.

The first crystal 3D structure of a complete human immunoglobulin is that of b12, a human IgG1, anti-gp120 [HIV-1], determined in 2001 (PDB code: 1hzh in IMGT/3Dstructure-DB).
