Abstract

In the course of our investigations on the anti-neuraminyl-specificity of the hemagglutinin from the hemolymph of the horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus (Cohen et al., 1972; Cohen, 1968), we included the hemolymph of this living fossil also in our experiments, dealing with the occurrence and distribution of blood group A like active structures in nature as detected by the heterophile anti-N-acetyl-D-galactosamine agglutinin/precipitin from the albumin gland of the snail Helix pomatia (see Prokop et al., 1974).
