The Occurrence during Acute Infections of a Protein Not Normally Present in the Blood: III. Immunological Properties of the C-Reactive Protein and Its Differentiation from Normal Blood Proteins
Description:
After detecting a new protein, the "C-reactive protein," in the serum of pneumonia patients, Avery and T. J. Abernethy set out to investigate what they believed to be an aspect of the infectious process that transcended the classic antigen-antibody reactions. Over the course of three papers in 1941, Avery and Abernethy, and later Avery and MacLeod, defined the characteristics of the protein and established that it was not an antibody. They cited evidence that the protein was instead released from tissue, likely as a result of cellular damage, and thus was a product of some nonspecific reaction of tissue to injury. Avery and MacLeod were further able to isolate the C-reactive protein as a highly purified, immunologically homogeneous protein.
