Ten allotypic specificities of chicken IgG designated K4, KS, K6, K7, K8, K9, KI0, K20, K21 and K30 were detected with the alloantisera prepared. The progenies of selected parent crossings were used for their genetic analysis which showed that each of the first seven specificities, i. e. K4 to KI0, characterizes one of the seven codominant alleles, alternating in that part of autosomal chromosome for which

It was further found that these specificities determining the individual alleles can be accompanied by the remaining three specificities to form phenogroups. K20 segregated into them with either specifity K4, K6, K7 or KI0, whereas K21 was closely associated with KS or K9. It was observed that K30 did not segregate in the birds analyzed. A possible mechanism of genetic control of allotypic specificities forming phenogroups is discussed in this study.
