An immunoglobulin (Ig) binding protein, Protein A (SpA) is present on the surface of bacteria and secreted into the extracellular environment. Protein A is known to bind the Fab regions, B-cell receptor (IgM), and Fc region of antibody in the host cell and suppresses host cell immune responses (1,2). Such cross-linking is found to prevent opsonophagocytosis and result in B-cell death in vitro (2). In most cases, protein A binds IgG but in certain species the binding is restricted to IgG subclasses. This characteristic enables efficient immunoglobulin purification and analysis, and fractionation of antibody subclasses (3). Overall, protein A can be used as an immunological reagent in a broad range of studies that involve detection of antibody-secreting cells (4).
