The antigenic fragments of bacteriophage T2 recovered in RNA derived from macrophages infected with T2 bacteriophage retain their capacity to combine with specific neutralizing antibody to T2. The preservation of the complete native tertiary structure of tail fiber antigen of bacteriophage T2 is not requiired for immucnogenicity.
