Abstract

A serum was developed which reacts with eggs by the circumoval precipitin (COP) test. This antiserum to COP antigens was prepared by coupling the COP immune complexes to protein A-Sepharose, isolating the complex with acid buffer, and immunizing rabbits with the eluate. The antiserum reacted with eggs, forming globular bleb and septate precipitates. It also reacted in gel diffusion with a soluble egg antigen preparation of (SEA). Of four SEA antigenic components precipitated one was clearly MSA. The antiserum to the COP antigens had anti-parasite antibodies absorbable with lyophilized cercariae or eggs. Three human immunoglobulins (IgG, IgM, and IgA) were involved in the COP reaction.
