Paper Abstract

Comparison of the dessicated and hydrated forms of the neutral salt of calcium bilirubinate indicated that water alters both the C-E1 skeleton and the polar groups of the molecule, suggesting that water may considerably alters the conformation and, therefore, the properties of calcium bilirubinate. The small degree of swelling indicates that some cross-linking is present in this ionic polymer but that it is much less than in whole pigment gallstones, suggesting that other molecules, possibly glycoproteins, provide much of the cross-linking.
