Abstract Diconza J. J. 1972. Toxocara canis: Some characteristics of larval precipitating antibodies in rat serum. International Journal for Parasitology 2: 471-479. Serum from rats infected with 1000 T. canis eggs had larval precipitating antibodies present at least between 21 and 183 days post infection. The precipitating antibodies in whole serum were stable to heating at 60°C for 1 h and excretory pore precipitates developed in serum treated with 2-mercaptoethanol. Fractionation of serum on G-200 and DEAE-cellulose and analysis of the fractions by immunoelectrophoresis indicated the fraction containing fast 7S globulin was primarily responsible for precipitating activity. Purified precipitating antibodies were stable to heating at 70°C for 15 min. No skin fixing antibodies were detected in immune sera employing both a homologous and heterologous PCA text.
