Abstract

Human cell membranes acquired an antigenic substance from the bovine serum in culture medium. The antigen was named the heterologous membrane antigen (HM Ag). Cross-reactive antigen was found in sera of all mammals tested, except for man. The distribution of the HM Ag serologically distinguished man from other mammals.
