A preliminary report of the biosynthesis of the M-protein by nonproliferating group A hemolytic streptococci was presented by Fox and Krampitz (1954). The M-protein is the somatic antigen which confers type specificity upon group A streptococci (Lancefield, 1940). The experiments presented now represent an attempt to define some of the conditions which are required for synthesis of M-protein. The technique employed was to remove the M-protein from the surface of the streptococcal cells with… CONTINUE READING
