  Domain Name: IgC_CH2_IgE
CH2 domain (second constant Ig domain of the heavy chain) in immunoglobulin E (IgE). IgC_CH2_IgE: The second constant domain of the heavy chain of immunoglobulin E (IgE). The basic structure of immunoglobulin (Ig) molecules is a tetramer of two light chains and two heavy chains linked by disulfide bonds. There are two types of light chains: kappa and lambda; each composed of a constant domain and a variable domain. There are five types of heavy chains: alpha, delta, epsilon, gamma, and mu, all consisting of a variable domain (VH) and three (in alpha, delta, and gamma) or four (in epsilon and mu) constant domains (CH1 to CH4). The different classes of antibodies vary in their heavy chains; the IgE class has the epsilon type. This domain (Cepsilon2) of IgE is in place of the flexible hinge region found in IgG.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
