Abstract

The proteinaceous crystal of Bacillus thuringiensis Var thuringiensis was found to enhance humoral immune response in rats and guinea pigs immunised with sheep red blood cells. The enhancement was due to the increased levels of both 19S and 7S antibodies in the sera of the treated animals. A novel synthesis of 7S haemolytic antibodies was observed in case of crystal treated animals.
