Method Primary source Brown and Johnson, 1981, abstract: "Fc gamma-receptor activity of isolated human placental syncytiotrophoblast microvillous plasma membrane (StMPM) vesicle preparations has been determined in an immunoradiometric assay using Sepharose-immobilized protein A to separate free 125I-labelled human IgG from membrane-bound 125I-IgG…Inhibition studies have determined the syncytiotrophoblast Fc gamma-receptor equilibrium constant for association (Ka) as 4.0×10^7 M^-1 at 37 degrees and the number of available Fc gamma-receptor sites as 1.5×10^14 per mg membrane protein." Primary source Lubega, 1990, abstract: "Various methods for studying the IgG interaction with its placental receptor have been examined to establish kinetic parameters."
Comments P.81 right column bottom paragraph: "Various methods have been used to investigate IgG-binding molecules, such as FcγRs, in placenta. Most of them used the analysis of the binding of isolated human placental membrane extracts to radiolabelled human IgG or IgG-sensitized erythrocytes. Estimates of the affinity of monomeric IgG for receptors in placental membrane range from 4×10^6 to 4×10^8 mol/l and a total number of binding sites per mg placental membrane protein ranges from 2×10^12 to 2×10^14 (primary sources)." Primary source McNabb et al., 1976, abstract: "Fc receptors have been shown to be present in human placental tissue with properties distinct from those on macrophages and lymphocytes. A single class of receptor was observed with an intrinsic affinity 4×10^(6) M^-1 for human IgG1." Primary source Lubega, 1990, abstract: "IgG binding has an average rate constant k1 of (2.57 +/- 0.94)×10^7/M per min." Please note-(a) The units should most probably be M^-1 as in primary source McNabb et al., rather than M as stated in ref.
