from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A compound albumin in which an albumiuous radical is in combination with a. special phosphorized radical (possibly a pseudo- or paranuclein). On decomposition the nucleoalbumins, unlike the nucleoproteids, do not give rise to the formation of xanthin bases. The group is closely related to the globulins (hence the term phosphoglobulins which has also been applied to them) and comprises some of the most important food-stuffs, such as the casein of milk, the vitellin of egg-yolk, the phytoglobulins of the leguminous plants, etc.
