Abstract

I would like to comment on Dr. Rosan’s results with the Rantz-Randall procedure as a preferential method of extracting cell wall associated polysaccharides. We have found this procedure to be excellent for the S. mutans type e and f polysaccharides. The original Rantz-Randall procedure was developed for the express purpose of extracting the M protein from group A streptococci and it has been in use for many years in the hospital laboratories for extracting not only the M protein but also the type specific polysaccharide of the group A streptococci. I would also like to say that it is nice to know that Dr. Shockman and I seem to have some agreement about the streptococcal cell wall, the mobility of the components and the surface location of these major antigens of the streptococcal cell.
