Mammalian Erythrocyte Receptors: Their Nature and their Significance in Immunopathology

  • Chapter

Part of the Bayer-Symposium book series (BAYER-SYMP,volume 1)

Abstract

Immunity reactions are interactions between the host and his environment. In this interaction “receptors” in the sense of Paul Ehrlich (1901) play a paramount role. The study of immunity reactions is not only important in itself but it furthers comprehension of other host-environment interactions including those of toxins, drugs or even live agents such as viruses. In all instances the agent or its products, be they noxious or beneficial, have first to attach to a receptor before they can begin to exert their influence.
