Cells of Trypanosoma cruzi, Y strain, were submitted to water extraction by successive freezing and thawing. Fractionation of soluble material on a P-10 column gave an antigenic glycoprotein (fraction I) whose carbohydrate portion (40%) contained galactose, mannose, glucose, and xylose in a molar ratio of 35:13:1:1. It was electrophoretically homogeneous (Mr approximately 25 000) and contained short chains of mannopyranosyl (23%) and galactopyranosyl (10%) nonreducing end units and 2-O… CONTINUE READING
