10 strains (isolates) of Aspergillus fumigatus, grown and harvested under identical conditions, were compared with respect to biochemical and immunological properties. The total protein and carbohydrate content isoelectric focusing pattern were determined for each of the individual strains. Their antigenic and allergenic activity was examined by a combination of crossed immunoelectrophoresis (CIE)/crossed radioimmunoelectrophoresis (CRIE) and RAST inhibition. Biochemical and immunochemical data… CONTINUE READING
