The metabolic properties of immunoglobulin were investigated by comparing five classes of mouse immunoglobulin. Three forms of 7S immunoglobulin had different rates of catabolism. The fractional rates of catabolism were found to be about 13 per cent per day for 7S gamma(2a)-globulin; 25 per cent for 7S gamma(2b)-globulin; and 17 per cent for 7S gamma(1)-globulin. Catabolism of the three classes of 7S gamma-globulin (gamma(2a), gamma(2b), and gamma(1)) were prolonged at low serum 7S gamma… CONTINUE READING
