Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cytotoxic, hemolytic and clastogenic activities of Rhizostoma pulmo toxin(s) contained in the jelly tissue free of nematocysts were investigated in mammalian cells with in vitro procedures. At the concentration of 37.6 microg/ml the tissue protein produced the death of 50% V79 cells; a similar potency was observed in terms of hemolytic activity. The toxin(s) was not clastogenic for human lymphocytes in culture at the concentration of 5 microg/ml.
