The preparation and properties of alexinated intermediates that react with conglutinin: II. Equine, rabbit and human complement

Publication Date
  • Articles


Methods for preparing non-lytic alexinated intermediates that react with conglutinin are described for rabbit and human complements as well as equine. Certain properties of these intermediates including, particularly, their stability, are described. It has been found that, while such intermediates can be formed from the various complements, no single method works for all of them. Differences between `haemolytic' and `conglutinating' complements are believed to reflect quantitative differences in reaction kinetics and in relative proportions of various components rather than any qualitative differences in components or reaction sequence.
