- Bovine factor H was found to be polymorphic by the combined techniques of SDS‐polyacrylamide electrophoresis of bovine plasma and immunoblotting. Three phenotypes (S, SF, F) were identified in a sample population of 149 cattle. Variant S and F differed by an apparent molecular weight of 5000 daltons. Family studies demonstrated Mendelian segregation of variants S and F. The data indicate that these genetic variants of bovine factor H are encoded by two codominant alleles at a single autosomal locus.
