 Get Full Record From LSID
Description
Returns the full ITIS record for the TSN in the LSID, found by comparing the TSN in the search key to the TSN field. Returns an empty result set if there is no match or the TSN is invalid.

Note: Because this API must do multiple database lookups, this can be a time-comsuming operation and may take several seconds to return information.
Input
A string containing the LSID.
Output
A set of strings containing the ITIS data, or an empty set if there is no match.
Example
