The properties of the material responsible for the clumping reaction given by suspensions of coagulase-positive staphylococci when shaken in the presence of fibrinogen were examined and a possible mechanism is suggested for the reaction. Of other bacteria examined only streptococci of groups A, C and G absorbed fibrinogen, and of these relatively few gave clumping, though the cell material responsible for absorption was similar to that found in staphylococci. In staphylococci i t is believed… CONTINUE READING
