Some Investigations of Elastin Biosynthesis In Vitro Using an Immunoprecipitant
The examination of early stages of elastin biosynthesis has been hampered by the lack of a reliable handle for the protein. The production of a hyperimmune serum in sheep which forms specific immunoprecipitates with salt-soluble elastin (1) is a potentially useful tool for this type of investigation. Its use in the measurement of elastin 1n tissue extracts has already been described (2), but here we report how this facility has been extended to the study of elastin biosynthesis in vitro.
