Abstract

SUMMARY: Evidence suggesting that the flagella of the highly immunogenic , strain 3, may be important in stimulating protective immunity was studied by preparing a pure flagellar suspension from the organism and comparing the protective antigenicity of the flagellar suspension and deflagellated cells. The protective antigenicity of strain 3 was not of flagellar origin, but due to a heat labile, pH sensitive, non-agglutinogenic somatic antigen.
