Abstract

Immunological relationships were investigated with acid and alkaline phosphatases, cystine aminopeptidase, β acetylglucosaminidase, β glucuronidase, catalase and L glutamate dehydrogenase of human, monkey, mouse, rat, rabbit, dog, cattle, sheep, cat, pig, guinea pig and chicken organ extracts by means of immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis. Extensive cross reactions among the antigens of most of the enzymes were observed. However, enzymic proteins of acid and alkaline phosphatases, cystine aminopeptidase, β acetylglucosaminidase and β glucuronidase were found to possess primate and/or human specific antigenic determinants.
