Immunogenetics of a macroglobulin allotype in cattle

  • Domenico Iannelli (a1) and Piero Masina (a1)

Summary

The paper describes a cattle serum antigen (McA2) located on a macroglobulin molecule which has its isoelectric point at pH 5 and is capable of interacting with the wheat germ lectin and concanavalin A.

The specificity is inherited in a simple Mendelian manner and the gene controlling its synthesis is allelic to the one controlling the synthesis of the McAl antigen.
