Abstract

Abstract Extracts prepared from the contents of chicken caeca contained only one immunoglobulin which was antigenically distinct from IgG and IgM. In saliva and oviduct washings this immunoglobulin was found together with IgG. Its levels in these secretions, relative to IgG, were much higher than in serum and yolk where it could also be detected. Although not identified by first order criteria, this immunoglobulin seems to be the equivalent in the fowl of mammalian IgA.
