Absence of amyloid protein from the organs of normal mice

  • L. N. Kapinus
Morphology and Pathomorphology


The indirect Coon's immunomorphological test was used to detect specific amyloid protein AA in the organs of mice with experimental amyloidosis and of normal mice (adult, newborn, and embryonic). By using pure antibodies against protein AA, minimal quantities of amyloid protein could be detected in the early stages of amyloid formation. No protein AA could be found in the organs of normal mice (adult, newborn, or embryonic).
