Our earlier serum electrophoretic study in 'lethargic' mutant mice showed that the quantity of protein in 1 band is inversely related to the size of the spleen. In this study, we demonstrate that this protein band almost entirely disappears in mice with splenomegaly following spontaneous skin infection. The results suggest that this serum protein may play a role in regulating growth of lymphoid tissue.
