The recently established mutant strain of rabbits, named BASILEA, lacks the k polypeptide L-chain which is replaced by a lambda-like type (bas). This is evident from the amino acid composition and peptide maps of the bas L-chain when compared to the L-chains of the rabbits suppressed for the expression of the b locus allotypes.
