Summary

From extracts of purified bird thrombocytes, obtained by differential centrifugation of chicken and goose blood, it has been possible to separate a material which corresponds perfectly in chemical, spectrophotometric, and biological properties to 5-OH-tryptamine. Bird thrombocytes, therefore, as far as the vasoconstrictor factor is concerned, are physiologically identifiable with mammalian platelets.
