Moreover, the excess is localized chiefly near the surface, and since it is not the agglutinin that is copper bearing, but the lipolysin, it appears probable that the latter is also concentrated immediately under the vitelline membrane. X. Copper Map of the Normal Egg. From all these tests—those on the controls as well as those on material exposed to copper sulphate, I have constructed a chart which indicates the distribution of copper in the normal Arbacia egg. This map is a visual summary of the chief results and infer- ences, and in view of the preceding discussion seems to require no other comment than that given in the legend under the figure.. Diagram showing distribution of copper in the normal egg of Arbacia punctulata. The central clear area is the nucleus. Immediately about this, and extending to the cortex, the larger black spots represent pigment granules in which copper was demonstrated indirectly by analysis of secreted pigment and directly, in situ, as potassium-copper-lead nitrite. The latter, as well.
