The role of diffusion in the Pneumococcus-Antipneumococcus reaction

Hershey, Alfred Day (November 1940) The role of diffusion in the Pneumococcus-Antipneumococcus reaction. Journal of Immunology, 39 (5). pp. 383-396.



The absolute rate of the pneumococcus-antipneumococcus reaction predicted by diffusion-theory has been found to agree with the results of protection-experiments. Apparently each molecule of antibody impinging upon the free cell-surface is irreversibly bound. The indifference of the reaction to temperature provides independent confirmation of this conclusion concerning the mechanism of the reaction.
