1. Sera (or humoral fluids) from various animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) were assayed for calciferin-like and cathepsin D-like activities, indicating the ubiquitous presence of the latter and the former (with a few exceptions). Animals other than the mammals appeared to contain an organophilic calciferin-like activity in addition to a hydrophilic component (calciferin). 2. A correlation was found between the levels of calciferin and acid protease in most of the mammalian sera. An age… CONTINUE READING
