Abstract

Summary

A murine monoclonal antibody (MAB AF-1) class IgM was raised to a soluble glucomannoprotein extract (GMP) of Agglutination and indirect immunofluorescence assays with purified MAB showed that AF-1 was directed against a cell-surface epitope shared by serotypes A and B, and , but not by and Treatment with heat, protease or periodatetreated GMP and with other cell-wall extracts of provided evidence that the epitope recognised by MAB AF-1 is carried by the polysaccharide moiety of cell-surface glucomannoprotein molecule(s).
