  • Abstract:

    The antigenic structure of the Salmonella isolated by Greenfield and Judd (1936) from an outbreak of food-poisoning at the Cape Peninsula is described. As its antigenic components were found to resemble those of bovis-morbificans the following antigenic factors should be assigned to it: Somatic "0'' antigen, VI, VIII; "H" (Specific) antigen, r; "H" (non-specific) antigen, 1, 3, 4, 5. The reason why Kunzendorf failed to absorb all the group agglutinins from this strain of bovis-morbificans and vice versa is still obscure.
