Protides of the Biological Fluids contains the proceedings of the XVIIIth Colloquium held in Bruges, Belgium in 1970. The papers focus on protides of the biological fluids, with emphasis on three main topics related to protein chemistry: proteins during development and the recurrence of fetal proteins in cancer; protein-protein interactions; and trends and technical refinements in the insolubilization of proteins. This book is comprised of 95 chapters and begins with an assessment of the relationships and functions of the apoprotein and lipid moieties of lipoproteins, followed by a discussion on the characteristics and structure of the alpha-fetoproteins. The protein patterns in the post-natal period, as well as specific patterns encountered during development of the various organs, are then considered. Subsequent chapters explore the recurrence of various fetoproteins in hepatoma and in tumors of the digestive system; protein-protein interactions occurring during association or aggregation of some proteins such as myosin, fibrin, and casein; and preparation of insolubilized enzymes, together with the isolation and purification of antibodies. The final section is devoted to immunological studies and methods such as thin-layer ultracentrifugation. This monograph will be a useful resource for biologists and chemists alike.
