  • a Each serum was assayed at two dilutions to determine the values shown. The amounts were deduced relative to the protein and RNA standards and expressed as molecules per milliliter. Also deduced was the molar ratio of δAg to genomic δRNA. Quantitation of δAg refers to both small and large forms.
