The genetic behaviour of haematic polymorphisms in cattle has been studied, making possible to point out the rules of inheritance for nearly all the investigated characters and to apply these knowledges to studies on genetic population (A. B.A., 1969; B ouquet and Grosclaude, 1968; Barbieri el al., 1969; Carenzi C. et al., 1969; Fiorentini et al., 1969; Rognoni et al., 1969; Crimella C., Persiani et al., 1970). The main interest of these studies is due to the possibility of utilizing such genetically controlled biochemical and antigenic polymorphisms for the characterisation of different cattle breeds, for phylogenetic studies and for the planning and control of selection on a genetic bases (B ouquet et al., 1970); Kidd e Zonta Sgaramella, 1970). It is necessary therefore, a deep knowledge of the genetic behaviour of the haematic polymorphisms in the studied breeds. For this purpose since many years our institute is carrying on researches both on the detection of erythrocyte antigens, by means of isoimmune sera, and the detection of protein and enzyme polymorphisms by means of electrophoretic techniques.
