In brief: Antibodies
Structural difference exist for all classes of antibody; igg, igm, iga, ige and igd.
The structure of the antibody is insignificant when compared to the common ability to bind specifically to an antigen, typically a foreign protein or carbohydrate. Structural differences do account for different immune cell binding properties and also complement fixation (which helps in defense).
