Abstract

Treatment of mycobacterial cells with Triton X-100 allowed the extraction and solubilization of antigens. Such extracts provided species-specific crossed immunoelectrophoresis profiles which demonstrated that “” and are antigenically distinct. Using the BCG antiserum as a reference, we showed that and BCG are more related to each other than “” is to both species.
