IMMUNOCHEMICAL STUDIES ON BLOOD GROUPS



Abstract

It has been possible, by employing a new color reaction for methylpentoses, to determine the fucose content of individual hog and human blood group A, B, and O substances. The data indicate an inverse correlation between fucose content of the hog A and O substances and ability to cross-react with Type XIV antipneumococcus serum. The human A, B, and O substances display no correlation between their fucose content and ability to cross-react with Type XIV antipneumococcus serum.
