Natural haemolysin

natural haemolysin

haemolysin occurring in the plasma of an animal of one species, e.g., a dog, which fixes complement with the red blood cells of some other species, e.g., a rabbit, thereby causing haemolysis of the cells of the rabbit, although the dog was not previously exposed to antigenic stimulation with such cells.
