Publisher Summary This chapter discusses plasma or serum proteins and the dysproteinemias. The major proteins of plasma are globular and only a few are fibrous, such as fibrinogen. The process of protein denaturation is the net effect of the alteration of the biological, chemical, and physical properties of a protein by disruption of its structure. There are a number of methods for the determination of total protein in the serum or other body fluids. To determine the amounts of albumins and… Expand
THE USE OF SERUM PROTEIN ELECTROPHORESIS
The aim of the study was to use serum protein electrophoresis for a preliminary evaluation of the physiological condition of horses and detection of potential diseases. The serum electropherogram ofExpand
Serum proteinogram of the Campeiro horse
The aim of this study to measure the fractions of the total serum proteins of the Campeiro horse and identify the influences of biological variants. Blood samples were taken in 138 horses of theExpand
Serum proteins and their diagnostic utility in veterinary medicine: a review
TLDR
Methods of serum protein determination, their diagnostic utility in animal care practice and their different patterns in dysproteinaemias and paraproteinaemia are reviewed. Expand
Practical methods for plasma lipoprotein analysis.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the practical methods for plasma lipoprotein analysis, and recent simplifications and improvements of other analytical methods have made these a partial replacement for the analytical ultracentrifuge, and newer methods have proved their value. Expand
A preliminary study on the serum protein response in canine babesiosis.
TLDR
The findings from this study suggest that dogs with mild and severe babesiosis had low total serum proteins, albumin, A/G ratio and alpha globulins; dogs with complicated Babesiosis showed no typical serum protein changes or patterns; and that there was no evidence of an acute-phase response detectable on serum protein electrophoresis in any of the 3 groups. Expand
Changes in concentration and fractions of blood serum proteins of chickens during fattening
TLDR
The given results are related to the role of protein metabolism in the rapid growth of chickens during fattening, and may serve as part of metabolic profile in evaluation of production patterns and health condition of chickens During fattens. Expand
Prednisone-induced Increases in Serum Alpha-2-Globulin and Haptoglobin Concentrations in Dogs
TLDR
If serum haptoglobin concentration increases following prednisone administration in dogs and, if so, to determine what fraction of concomitant alpha-2-globulin increase may be attributable to increased haaptoglobin, this study was conducted. Expand
Comparison of serum protein electrophoretic pattern in cows and small ruminants
TLDR
The marked species differences in most of serum protein fractions between the evaluated groups of animals are described and contribute to the current knowledge about the physiological electrophoretic pattern of serum proteins in ruminants, which can be used for diagnostic purposes. Expand
Effects of haemolysis, lipaemia, bilirubinaemia and fibrinogen on protein electropherogram of canine samples analysed by capillary zone electrophoresis.
TLDR
The possible interference of haemolysis, lipaemia, bilirubinaemia and fibrinogen on capillary zone electrophoresis of canine samples were studied and no differences were found between serum and plasma samples, and fibinogen did not produce any additional peak. Expand
Serum total proteins and related electrophoretic fractions in growing foals
TLDR
Evaluating changes of serum total proteins, albumin, α1, α2, β1, β2 and γ-globulins in growing foals during the first month of life provides useful information that could help clinicians to better interpret clinical data and diagnose equine neonatal disease. Expand

TLDR
Experimental investigations have demonstrated that inanitionlOJ1 and protein depletion" cause decreases in both the proteins and protein-bound carbohydrates of rat serum, and modifications of the depletion-repletion technique of Cannon and his associatesI have been employed to investigate the effects of dietary protein on the serum proteins and glycoproteins of adult, male rats.

TLDR
No changes in the electrophoretic mobilities of the major serum proteins were detected as the calves matured, and no significant difference was found between the mobility of the electophoretic components of calf and adult sera. Expand

Passage of plasma albumin into the intestine of the sheep
TLDR
It was found that after intravenous administration of 131I-albumin to normal subjects and to patients with carcinoma of the stomach labelled albumin appeared in the gastric juice, normally in such degree that a substantial part of the albumin break-down would appear to take place in the stomach and upper part ofThe small intestine.

Summary Bovine serum protein was fractionated with a continuous flow electrophoresis apparatus. Vit. A and carotene were principally associated with albumin. When one co-twin of identical twinExpand
Effect of corticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisone acetate on the plasma volume and the circulating serum albumin and globulin in normal dogs.
The object of the present work was to examine how corticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisone influence the plasma volume, the serum globulin and the serum albumin in the normal organism. ApparentlyExpand
Immunochemical quantitation of antigens by single radial immunodiffusion.
TLDR
By standardizing the technical conditions of the experiment it is possible to use this principle for the immunochemical determination of antigens, and the lower limit of the method was found to correspond to 0·0025 μg of antigen, and to an antigen concentrations of 1·25 μg per ml. Expand
