Four species of sea anemones in the coastal waters of Japan were surveyed for hemolysins. Powerful hemolysins were detected in Parasicyonis actinostoloides and Anthopleura japonica, whereas extracts of A. fuscoviridis showed much weaker hemolytic activity and those of of Haliplanella luciae no activity. Among the animal erythrocytes tested sheep were most sensitive to the hemolysins of the three positive species. The major hemolysin (parasitoxin) in whole bodies of P. actinostoloides was… CONTINUE READING
