Gel Diffusion Studies on Polymorphic Serum Proteins in the Chicken

  • E. M. McDermid
Chapter

Summary

Iso-immune antisera to chicken blood serum proteins have been stimulated by prolonged immunization using a variety of methods. Results of testing all individuals of 4 lines of chicken in one generation with all available antisera are given. Several reaction patterns of antisera are demonstrated. The relationship between these immune antibodies and the naturally occurring antibodies of other workers is discussed.
