Studies on the Oxidation and Reduction of Immunological Substances : I. Pneumococcus Hemotoxin.

Abstract

Pneumococcus hemotoxin, an antigenic substance of bacterial origin, is converted by oxidation to a product devoid of hemolytic action. The oxidation product of the hemotoxin may be converted to the original hemolytic substance by reduction, by the anaerobic action of certain bacteria, or by sodium hydrosulfite. The active lysin, or hemotoxin, produced by… (More)
