The antimicrobial activity of secretions of the pouch of the koala, Phascolarctos cinereus has been documented in thepresence and absence of young. These secretions have been analysed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, high performanceliquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (MS) including time of flight (TOF), MS-MS and Edman sequencing. Gel electrophoresis of reduced samples revealed the presence of a four polypeptides in active and inactive secretions. The sequence data obtained from… Expand

Structure and Function of Leukocytes in the Family Macropodidae
TLDR
The current body of knowledge was extended by the first detailed description of the ultrastructure of basophils in a marsupial, and cytochemical, ultrastructural and functional features of leukocytes from species of marsupials belonging to the family Macropodidae were examined. Expand
