Abstract

The genetic polymorphism of the factor B (Bf) [1–3] of the alternative complement pathway has been studied hitherto by means of a technique of immunofixation electrophoresis on agarose gels. We studied this polymorphism using the isoelectrofocusing technique: this technique is more sensitive and therefore could be considered preferable for demonstration of a new polymorphism.
