The emergence of techniques for the isolation of cell walls of microorganisms (Dawson, 1949; Salton and Horne, 1951) has opened new approaches to immunological and physiological problems presented by the microbial surface. The recovery of clean cell walls of the group A hemolytic streptococci in good yield particularly enhances the study of such surface antigens as the group C polysaccharides and the type specific M proteins. Cell walls present a more advantageous starting material than the… CONTINUE READING
