[Improved method for the demonstration of protein A of Staphylococcus aureus (author's transl)].

Abstract

Protein A (PA) could be extracted completely from Staphylococcus aureus by treatment with concentrated formic acid. This led to the development of a semi-quantitative determination of PA by hemagglutination (fig. 1). The treatment with formic acid yielded PA more effectively than the commonly used extraction by boiling (table 1). It could be conducted… (More)
