Interaction between streptococcal IgG Fc receptors and human and rabbit IgG domains.


Groups A, C and G streptococci were tested for their ability to bind 125I-labelled fragments of human and rabbit IgG in order to localize their sites of interaction with IgG domains. Among the Group A streptococci, strains with IgG Fc receptors bound 85% of the added IgG Fc fragments in the test systems, whereas these strains showed practically no… (More)
