Abstract

Three glucan-binding proteins have been isolated from the extracellular fluid of cultures of serotype These proteins were adsorbed to glucans containing 1,3- or 1,6- bonds and linked to various chromatographic supports: they were eluted from columns by a dextran solution. Glucosyltransferase activity was associated with two of the glucan-binding proteins.
