Description

Blood and Tissue Antigens documents the proceedings of the International Symposium on Blood and Tissue Antigens held in Ann Arbor, Michigan on September 17-19, 1969. This book focuses on the immunogenetic and biochemical aspects of the blood and tissue antigens. The topics discussed include the genetics of blood groups; blood groups and serum phosphatase; immunogenetics of the mouse H-2 system; and glycolipids as membrane antigens. The carbohydrate composition of epithelial mucins; glycolipids in SV40 and polyoma virus transformed mouse cell lines; and metabolic variations of serum proteins and enzymes are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the action of glycosidases on erythrocytes; blood group specific oligosaccharides in urine; biosynthesis of submaxillary mucins; and genes, glycosyltransferases, and blood types. This publication is a good source for students and individuals researching on blood and tissue antigens.
