Immunoglobulin Class Switching definition: Gene rearrangement of the B-lymphocyte which results in a substitution in the type of heavy-chain constant region that is expressed. This allows the effector response to change while the antigen binding specificity (variable region) remains the same. The majority of class switching occurs by a DNA recombination event but it also can take place at the level of RNA processing.
isotype switching definition: The switching of activated B cells from IgM biosynthesis to biosynthesis of other isotypes of immunoglobulin, accomplished through a recombination process involving an intrachromosomal deletion involving switch regions that reside 5' of each constant region gene segment in the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus.

Class definition: A grouping of things based on shared common attributes.
Actinobacteria definition: Class of BACTERIA with diverse morphological properties.

Bacteriol. (1997) 47:479-491)

Class definition: A collection of taxonomic subdivisions directly under Phylum. It is a major group of organisms, e.g. Mammalia, Reptilia, Gastropoda, Insecta, etc that contains a large number of different sublineages, but have shared characteristics in common (e.g. warm-blooded, fur, six legs etc).
Cestoda definition: subclass of segmented worms comprising the tapeworms; in the Platyhelminths phylum.
Cestoda definition: A subclass of segmented worms comprising the tapeworms.
Canadian Cardiovascular Society Grading Scale Class definition: Grading of patient's angina by class (Canadian Cardiovascular Society Grading Scale or CCS classification system): Class I: Ordinary physical activity, such as walking or climbing stairs, does not cause angina. Angina occurs with strenuous, rapid, or prolonged exertion at work or recreation. Class II: Slight limitation of ordinary activity. Angina occurs on walking or climbing stairs rapidly, walking uphill, walking or climbing stairs after meals, or in cold, in wind, or under emotional stress, or only during the few hours after awakening. Angina occurs on walking more than 2 blocks on the level and climbing more than 1 flight of ordinary stairs at a normal pace and in normal condition. Class III: Marked limitations of ordinary physical activity. Angina occurs on walking 1 to 2 blocks on the level and climbing 1 flight of stairs in normal conditions and at a normal pace. Class IV: Inability to perform any physical activity without discomfort- anginal symptoms may be present at rest. (Campeau L. Circulation. 1976;54:522. Letter) (NIH Roadmap Cardiovascular Data Standards Working Group)
Canadian Cardiovascular Society Grading Scale Class definition: A finding associated with a patient based on the functional classification developed by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS), for categorizing patients with angina. The classification system comprises four classes, which are defined in terms of the level of physical activity associated the with patient's anginal symptoms.
