Tadpoles of Rana catesbiana, possessing about two million lymphocytes, were immunized with 2,4-dinitrophenyl- and 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl-conjugated bacteria and proteins, and the antibodies produced were studied by inactivation of dinitrophenyl- and trinitrophenyl-conjugated bacteriophages. Crossreactions were determined by inhibition of inactivation of… CONTINUE READING
