Haemolytic activity in the blood clot of Aedes aegypti.


In the present study it was demonstrated that mosquito blood clots contain a haemolytic principle which achieves haemolysis of washed erythrocytes in an isotonic medium. Proteinases are thought to play a role in this process. No final proof could be given for the existence of phospholipase activity although some results suggest the presence of this group of enzymes.
