Antisera against a mink plasma protein complex which cross reacted immunologically with human fibrinogen were produced. During the breeding season extremely high plasma levels of fibrinogen/fibrin were recorded in female mink using rocket immunoelectrophoresis. During the subsequent gestation period the levels gradually decreased to reach non-breeding season levels at term. The mink fibrin/fibrinogen molecules were found to exist mainly in large aggregates with a molecular weight around 630 kD. The molecules were found to bind heparin and concanavalin A. © 1988.
