Abstract

Abstract Forssman hapten capable of precipitating specific antibody was isolated from stromata of erythrocytes of sheep. The product was found to be relatively pure. It melted with decomposition at 203–208 °, contained 2.92% nitrogen and less than 0.1% phosphorus, and possessed a molecular weight in the neighborhood of 1000. Galactose, chondrosamine, and lignoceric acid were tentatively identified in the acid hydrolyzate of the hapten. A basic component was not characterized.
