Dear David,

I don't know whether the protein is attached by any known type of linkage,
or whether it is "bound" to the polysaccaride at all. But at pH 7.0 or
slightly below they are very difficult to separate. I would like to hear if
anyone has a method of determining the relationship for certain.

With warm regards,
Ralph Gainey
