Between days 1 and 3 after an ovary was implanted with abiotic material (a shell ball) via an incision, agranular amebocytes formed a sheath,(More)
No distinct differences were noted in the components of plasmin-treated IgG from the known components of papain-treated IgG (Fab and Fc fragments and untreated IgG) on the physicochemical and the immunological properties and the biological activities. Incubation of IgG with 30 cu/g of plasmin for 96 hours at 20 degrees C was found to be optimum. The(More)
