Abstract: The adsorption of fibrinogen from single solution and from mixed solution with albumin and gamma-globulin has been followed at the air-buffer, isooctane-buffer, and methylene iodide-buffer interfaces by the pendant drop technique. Fibrinogen is shown to form substantial coherent films on isooctane and methylene iodide, suggesting considerable unfolding and lateral association. From this, a novel hypothesis has been proposed to account for the dominance of fibrinogen adsorption from mixed solutions on certain h…
