Abstract

SUMMARY: Three antigenic components () are present in toxic culture-filtrates of . Of these is the lethal and necrotizing toxin, is a collagenase, and γ is a cysteine-activated proteinase which attacks altered collagen (e.g. hide-powder or azocoll) but not native collagen. The and -enzymes both attack gelatin. By methods based on the properties of these antigens, antisera can be tested for the corresponding antibodies.
