The serum proteins of three neurological mutations, tremulous, quivering, and waddler, were studied. The albumin level rose while the globulin level, especially the level of alpha fraction, fell in tremulous mice, but the trend was reversed in quivering mice. In waddler mice the changes were observed only in females.
