Annotation
/defic = AGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA or DYSGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; index under IMMUNIZATION, PASSIVE for therapy with gamma-globulins in general or unspecified; anti-gamma globulin antibodies = ANTI-ANTIBODIES (IM) + GAMMA-GLOBULINS (IM); gammopathies: coordinate GAMMA-GLOBULINS (IM) with PARAPROTEINEMIAS (IM) but consider also HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA, follow text
Scope Note
Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.
