Electrophoretic analysis of the composition of the specific precipitate
- 10 Downloads
An electrophoretic analysis of the dissolved precipitate and supernatant fluid was conducted in the equivalent zone. For microelectrophoresis on paper, a Flynn and De Mayo type of chamber as modified by A. E. Gurvich was used. The specific precipitate, thoroughly washed with saline solution, largely consists of the γ-globulins of the immune serum (about 85%) and proteins, the electrophoretic mobility of which approaches that of the β2 and β-globulins. Albumins adsorbed by the specific antigen-antibody complex are lost in washing the precipitate. A suggestion is made that about 15% of the precipitate consists of nonspecific proteins.
