It is now thirteen years since the discovery of IgD in the human (1), and yet the biological role of this immunoglobulin class still remains to be clearly defined. A first step towards this goal was the recent description of a murine IgD homologue (2–4), and the development of corresponding hetero- and allo-antisera (5, 6). Although most experimental work has been done in the mouse system, there are now indications of an IgD equivalent in rabbits (7), monkeys (8), rats (9), chickens (10) and tortoises (11).
