For example, it is accepted that when serum ofanimal X is injected into a rabbit the antibodies (precipitins) that have been induced should react strongly against the serum 41 from animal X . H owever, species specificity is often not absolute s ince it can be shown that kinship exists even between different species. C ross-reactions, due to shared an tigenic determinants, based on phylogenetic relationship, can be used as yet another means of classifying various species, as an alternative to con ventional methods of taxonomy.

Finally, on another level,functiona/ specificity can be defin ed, for example, in relation to certain seru m proteins such as the albumins, a­ globulins and i m munoglob ulins of a si ngle species; these proteins do not possess antigen ic specifities in common. In other words, these serum components are functionally different, but the albumins of rats and rabbits may contain common characteristics or determinants.
