Abstract

SUMMARY: The polysaccharide, elaborated in trachoma-inclusion conjunctivitis (TRIC) agent inclusions, was isolated from baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells grown and infected in suspension cultures. It was characterized by physical, chemical and enzymic methods as a glycogen with an average chain length of 14 to 16 glucose units.
