Use of Bacillus subtilis minicells to demonstrate an antigenic relationship between the poles and lateral cylindrical regions of rod-shaped cells.

Abstract

Purified minicells produced by Bacillus subtilis div IV-B1 mutants were used to immunize rabbits. Immune serum was obtained that agglutinated minicells and was able to form precipitin lines when reacted with minicell antigens in double-diffusion or immunoelectrophoretic procedures. Antiminicell serum agglutinated rod-shaped B. subtilis cells to long… (More)
