Abstract

The sea star Asterias rubens reacts specifically to the antigen: Horse-Radish Peroxydase (HRP) and produces an «antibody» anti-HRP.We had presented a candidate IgKappa gene corresponding to this last one in 2013. We show now the gene called: «sea star IgKappa gene» in its specificity. We have to know, at the present time that, at our knowledge, the sea star doesn’t react specifically to all the antigens.
