Abstract

The major structural protein of avian oncornaviruses, a core component of about 2700 daltons, has been measured by radioimmunoassay. The purified protein was labelled with 125Iodine by chloramine T method. The immune serum titer was defined as the highest serum dilution able to precipitate 50% of the labelled antigen present in the system. A standard competition curve was constructed in order to determine the equivalents of protein, in a system with limiting antibody concentration.
