As the chemist increases his knowledge and understanding of the complex and delicate nature of the proteins, many of the methods which are used in the handling and treatment of protein systems need to be reviewed and reexamined in the light of the new information which is now available.
This study has endeavored to take the biologically active protein system from the pollen or timothy grass (Phleum pratense) and examine its stability under currently used methods of extraction, purification, and storage.
New chemical agents were studied in connection with the above mentioned protein tor their possible use in the place of phenol as more appropriate bactericidal or bacteriostatic preservatives.
