Abstract

Alloalbumin Tagliacozzo (313 Lys--→Asn) was detected in the cerebrospinal fluid of a 27-yr-old woman. We studied this rare finding by means of high-resolution electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing, and immunofixation. We herein discuss the importance of molecular mass versus superficial electrical charge in the transfer of plasma proteins through the blood-brain barrier.
