Interpretation

VGKC antibodies have been renamed VGKC-complex antibodies as it is now recognised that the VGKCs are tightly complexed with other proteins and that the radioimmunoprecipitation assay recognises these complexed proteins as well as the VGKCs themselves. The most common complex proteins discovered so far are LGI1 and CASPR2. However, as not all the complex proteins have been identified, we recommend testing for VGKC-complex antibodies as a first step.
