Leukocyte Membrane Determinants Regulating Immune Reactivity is a result of the Leukocyte Culture Conference meeting held at Amsterdam in 1975. Abstracts presented in the meeting are compiled in this book. The topics of these abstracts are all under leukocyte biology and include not just lymphocytes but also monocytes, macrophages, and granulocytes.
The text is composed of six major sections. The first section features abstracts that deal with ligand binding and subsequent changes in membrane. Section II focuses on the receptors on lymphocytes in the context of various subpopulations. Immune reactivity, specifically its augmentation or suppression, is the main topic of Section III. Gene products are emphasized in Section IV, while effector functions of membrane determinants are tackled in Section V. Finally, Section VI features leukocyte membrane determinants in differentiation and maturation.
The book presents much detailed information that will be of great help to students or professionals in the study of biology, specifically leukocyte biology.
