• antigen
  • To characterize the safety and immunogenicity of a heptavalent antigen-keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) plus QS21 vaccine construct in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer in second or greater complete clinical remission. (aacrjournals.org)
  • proteins
  • citation needed] The evolutionary changes within the phylogeny of the hemocyanin superfamily are closely related to the emergence of these different proteins in various species. (wikipedia.org)
  • cooperativity
  • Differential scanning calorimetry, light scattering, crossed immunogelelectrophoresis and oxygen binding experiments show that the 24-meric hemocyanin is conformationally stable and fully functioning at temperatures up to 90 degrees C. Our results demonstrate that the cation-mediated state of oligomerization is not only crucial for the high cooperativity of oxygen binding of this hemocyanin, but also for its extreme stability in the physiological temperature and pH range.

  • found
  • Regardless of whether they employ haemocyanin or haemoglobin, the pigments are dissolved directly in the serum, with no equivalent of the red blood cells found in mammals. (wikipedia.org)
