Abstract

The basis for the formation of amyloid may be the presence of excess amounts of fibril protein precursors capable of their polymerization. Certain serum proteins appear to be the fibril precursors in the systemic amyloidosis. Structural identity of urinary Bence Jones proteins (BJP) and amyloid fibril proteins from the same patient has been confirmed by amino acid sequence analysis (Terry et al., 1973). In that patient with BJP kappa in the urine, the clinical and pathologic data mainly suggested involvement of the muscularis and serosal layers of the intestinal wall. The present case in this paper associated with BJP lambda provided the similar features. The entire amino acid sequence and the physico-chemical character of this BJP are presented.
