1. A biological specimen or other element that is a duplicate of the holotype.
2. Any of several classes or subclasses of immunoglobulins, such as immunoglobulins A and G, that are distinguished by differences in the amino acid sequence of the constant regions of their heavy chains. All isotypes are usually found in every individual of a species.
