Avery treated horse serum with various concentrations of ammonium sulfate, a commonly used method for precipitating proteins from serum. He solubilized the precipitates and injected these solutions into mice infected with a lethal dose of S. pneumonia. The fractions providing the greatest protection precipitated with 38–42% ammonium sulfate, a fraction known to contain globulins and to exclude albumin and euglobulins. Moreover, the globulin fraction was also the most active in related agglutination and precipitation assays (Avery, 1915).
