  • Abstract:

    Electrophoretic and chromatographic separations of the salivary secretion of Amblyomma hebraeum showed a less complex protein pattern than that of Ornithodoros savignyi. A hyaluronidase active component was isolated. The haemolymph protein pattern showed a major protein fraction with a mobility slightly faster than that of bovine serum albumin.
