Abstract: Novel models of idiotype nets of antibodies have been developed to study the code responsible for the amino acid interaction and complex formation of proteins. It is shown that the interaction of protein active centres in idiotype nets can be interpreted and predicted basing on the structure of code of codon roots of amino acids and polarity principle. “Internal images” of the sequence antigene determinants of proteins in immunoglobulin molecules are built mainly from the amino acid groups having common codon roots, which is in agreement with the conception of the structure of the root code.
