The red alga Gracilaria verrucosa was found to possess hemagglutinins against various kinds of animal erythrocytes; among these the horse, guinea pig, and chicken erythrocytes were strongly agglutinated. The hemagglutinins were very stable between pH 4 and 12 and also relatively stable to heat. Their activity was not affected by the divalent metal cations tested. One hemagglutinin component (GVA-1) was purified by successive column chromatographies on DEAE-cellulose, Sephadex G-75… CONTINUE READING
