Abstract

Summary: H-lysin from has been purified 1770-fold by freeze fractionation, ammonium sulphate precipitation, ion exchange chromatography and gel filtration chromatography. The purified material was predominantly H-lysin, devoid of detectable T-lysin, caseinase or gelatinase activity, although glycerophospholipid: cholesterol acyltransferase (GCAT) activity was present. The results suggested that H-lysin and GCAT activities were due to different extracellular products. Studies of the kinetics of haemolysis indicated that the H-lysin had an enzymic mode of action, and that initial erythrocyte damage appeared to precede lysis of the cell. The H-lysin was lethal to cultured rainbow trout gonad cells and leucocytes, but when it was injected intravenously in rainbow trout no pathological effects were observed.
