Title: ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PARTIALLY PURIFIED LEPTOSPIRAL ANTIGENS (1)
Author: KOURY, MC
RANGEL, HA
Abstract: The methanol extract of Leptospira interrogans serovar canicola was purified by precipitation with acetone or acetone and chloroform. The antigenicity of the antigen was not altered by heating or treatment with pepsin and pronase. However the antigenicity was lost when the antigen was treated with periodic acid. Chemical analysis revealed the presence of 40% carbohydrate (22% methylpentose, 28% hexoses), 4% protein, 20% lipid and 2.7% phosphate. The complement fixation test with sera from patients with leptospirosis agreed with the microscopic agglutination reaction.
