Non-specific Hæmagglutinin from Cellulose and Cellulose Ion Exchanger

Article metrics


IN our work on the fractionation of ether-treated influenza viruses by chromatography on DEAE-columns (N,N-diethylaminoethylcellulose)1 it was found that samples of cellulose exchangers released different amounts of non-specific hæmagglutinin which has to be removed by thorough washing (refs. 1 and 2 and McCrea, J. F., personal communication). We have found similar non-specific hæmagglutinins in batches of normal cellulose, CAM-cellulose and ECTEOLA-cellulose (Schleicher and Schüll, Dassel, Germany ; Serva-Entwicklungslabor, Heidelberg, Germany).
