Reaction Patterns of Monofactorial Reagents in Various Breeds and Lines of Chickens



Investigations in various breeds and lines were carried out to try to solve the problem of the monofactorial reagents in chicken blood typing. Great attention was paid to the accidental non-specific cross-reactions.

The fact, that two or more identical reagents reacting against one and the same antigen, could be produced from various pouvaient sera, proved to be the best evidence for the mono-specificity. These sera or rather reagents, belonging to the A, E and B systems gave practically the same reaction patterns not only with the panel of control cells but also with those of birds belonging to various lines and breeds. These results — together with the encouraging data of the European comparative tests hitherto performed — suggest more intense continuation of international cooperation for selection of reference reagents in chickens.
