Abstract

Summary: Rabbit antisera against -asparaginase preparations from sp. and showed on immunoelectrophoresis that only the enzymes from and Citrobacter are immunologically related. Purified preparations had to be used to determine the immunological cross-reactions. Immunoelectrophoresis at different pH values yielded the zero mobility points of the enzymes. The activity of the preparation was enhanced up to fourfold by homologous antiserum but not by normal sera. Heterologous antisera also enhanced, but only at a higher concentration. Less enhancement was observed for the other enzymes with antisera as well as with bovine serum albumin. Inhibition was not observed.
