Abstract

Antigen a was isolated from strain 830 of by autolysis in phosphate buffer followed by alcohol precipitation. Purification was principally achieved by affinity chromatography on wheat germ agglutinin ultrogel and on anti- teichoic acid immunosorbent. The a antigen was weakly immunogenic in rabbits. Chemical analysis showed that a is a teichoic acid composed of ribitol phosphate, -acetylglucosamine and alanine. It has similar physico-chemical properties to the wall --acetylglucosamine ribitol teichoic acid of but is serologically distinct.
