Enhancement of immunogenic properties of ovalbumin as a result of its chlorination

Int J Biochem. 1991;23(12):1393-5. doi: 10.1016/0020-711x(91)90280-z.

Abstract

1. Chlorination of ovalbumin results in its enhanced immunogenic properties. 2. This has been evaluated by the interleukin-2 production after incubation of the modified protein with antigen presenting cells and T helper cells.
