Abstract

The authors determined, by an immunochemical method, the alpha-1-antitrypsin, Gc globulin, prealbumin, albumin, haemopexin, transferrin, haptoglobin, IgA, IgG, ceruloplasmin, alpha-2-macroglobulin contents of 98 follicular fluids, 10 peritoneal fluids and 24 blood sera. Out of these proteins analysed, change in the concentration of alpha-1-antitrypsin showed correlation with the maturity and fertilisation of the oocyte. The alpha-1-antitrypsin content was 1.6 +/- 0.26 g/l in the case of mature oocytes, and 3.1 +/- 1.12 g/l in the case of immature ones. Fertilisation was also concomitant of low alpha-1-antitrypsin levels.
