Abstract

INFLUENZA virus is known to contain large amounts of phospholipid. By treating the virus with phospholipase C, considerable amounts of acid-soluble phosphoric compounds are released, and the virus becomes sensitive to the action of proteinase from Streptomyces griseus (proteinase SG, ref. 1) with reduction of its infectivity.
