(3%) As with all other amoebocytes
, this small (6-9-[micro]m) cell has an irregular shape, typically displaying a large variety of pseudopodia.
3]) by the Limulus amoebocyte
lysate assay; thus, silk workers were considered to be exposed to negligible amounts of endotoxin at work.
TNF-[alpha] induction , Limulus amoebocyte

Detection of ocular infections: Clinical Application of the Limulus Amoebocyte
The absence of detectable levels of endotoxin in the final solution was verified by a Limulus amoebocyte
lysate assay, following the purification process .
The traditional methods for pyrogen detection either require animal sacrifice for the Rabbit Pyrogen Test (RPT), or are limited to the detection of endotoxin LPS from the cell walls of gram-negative bacteria (for example in the Limulus Amoebocyte
Lysat [LAL] test).
The assay consists of a colorless substrate and a proenzyme extracted from amoebocyte
cells in the blood of horseshoe crabs.
2008), the concentration of cell-free LPS in the rumen fluid supernatant was determined by the Limulus amoebocyte
lysate (LAL) assay (Xiamen Houshiji, Ltd.
Detection of pyrogens adsorbed to intraocular lenses: evaluation of limulus amoebocyte
lysate and in vitro pyrogen tests.
The endotoxin level in each recombinant protein was measured using a Limulus Amoebocyte
Lysate (LAL) assay and was below 50 IU/mg (Cambrex, East Rutherford, NJ).
Horseshoe crabs' blue blood contains the clotting factor LAL (limulus amoebocyte
lysate), which clots when toxins are encountered.
