An immediate animal principle- solid, white, and inodorous; insipid; heavier than water; without action on the vegetable blues; elastic, when moist; hard and brittle when dry. It enters into the composition of the chyle and the blood, and forms the chief part of the muscles of red-blooded animals. Muscular fibrin, Syntonin, Musculin, has been shown, however, to be different from that of the blood. In certain diseased actions, Fibrin or Coagulable lymph, gluten, is separated from the blood, and is found in considerable quantity on the surfaces of membranes, and in the cavities of the body. See Liquor Sanguinis. Fibrin is likewise a proximate principle of vegetables, and differs but little in chemical composition from animal fibrin; nor does it differ much from albumen and casein.
