All pigmented animals clotted when the nucleo-proteid was derived from either source.
Serve with either clotted cream or a lightly whipped double cream with a little brandy added.
Brodie, in ascertaining the physiological properties of nucleo-proteids, found that when they were intravascularly injected into pigmented rabbits, coagulation of the blood resulted, but of the eight albinoes which they used, none clotted.
When this is clotted the serum is found to act as an anti-venin, so that when mixed with the venom of a snake it renders it harmless.
