This small text discusses the genetics of several serum proteins and the blood group antigens.
The initial chapter discusses methodology used to characterize immunoglobulins with special emphasis on the principle of immunodiffusion techniques that are of widespread use in a variety of disciplines. Separate chapters deal with immunoglobulin structure and genetics, polymorphisms of haptoglobin, transferrin, and red cell enzymes. Thus, the uninitiated are introduced to the language and methodology relevant to polymorphisms of plasma proteins and red cell enzymes.
The standard of writing is generally high, the bibliography after each chapter is complete, and the topics covered are of current
