igg immunoglobulin transcytosis in epithelial cells mediated by fcrn immunoglobulin receptor Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process of transporting IgG immunoglobulin, via transcytosis using the FcRn (also known as the neonatal Fc receptor; gene name FCGRT), from apical surface of an epithelial cell to the basolateral surface or vice versa depending on the location. This process is used for uptake of IgG from the milk in the gut in rodents, for transplacental transport of IgG from mother to embryo in humans, and for maintenance of a steady-state distribution of IgG across epithelial boundaries in general in adult mammals.
