Abstract

SUMMARY

Hepatitis B (Australia) antigen was isolated from normal serum proteins by gel filtration and electrofocusing. The latter technique revealed a heterogeneity of the small spherical particles associated with hepatitis B antigen activity, there being a variance in determined isoelectric points according to the serological subtype studied. Hepatitis Bantigen isolated in this manner was aggregated by concanavalin A.
