A precipitin for human serum proteins as released under stress by a marine invertebrate, the marsh snail, Littorina irrorata.

Abstract

A substance released into the environment by stressed marsh snails, Littorina irrorata, precipitates with the beta globulin and albumin fractions of human serum proteins. Other diverse invertebrate species may produce a similar substance. Invertebrate precipitins have not been widely reported, and none like the one described. Some physicochemical and… (More)
