Cellular location of streptolysin O.

By G B Calandra and T S Theodore


Streptolysin O was measured in subcellular fractions of group A streptococci obtained after preparation of protoplasts in a hypertonic buffer containing raffinose. Most of the activity was located in the periplasm (the region between cell wall and membrane) and did not differ in several characteristics from that of extracellular streptolysin O. Of the enzymes used as subcellular markers, aldolase and maltase (cytoplasmic) and acid phosphatase (membrane associated) were in the same fractions as found in other bacteria. However, the location of alkaline phosphatase differed from that of other bacteria in the most of the activity was in cytoplasm rather than in the periplasm
