The Nature of the PHA Receptor on Red Cells
In 1969, we found , that the so-called PHA (Phaseolus vulgaris) receptor for red cell agglutination was located in the glycoprotein fraction of the outer red cell membrane. This could be demonstrated by immunodiffusion in agargel, where a mucoid preparation from pig red cells precipitated with PHA from Phaseolus vulgaris DIFCO, in a similar way to own preparation from wax bean, both giving an identity line with the red cell mucoid.
