The reaction with methylviolet, however, differs from that with true amyloid in being evanescent.
When hardened in spirit, however, the greater part of this experimental amyloid in the fowl vanishes, and the reactions are not forthcoming.
It further resembles true amyloid in giving all its colour reactions.
This amyloid substance is slowly and imperfectly digested by pepsin - digestion being more complete with trypsin and by autolytic enzymes.
The circulation is little interfered with, although the walls of the vessels are much thickened by the amyloid material (fig.
Quite likely the amyloid may be a combination of the substance with a proteid.
The wax-like or amyloid substance has a certain resemblance to the colloid, mucoid and hyaline.
