    This paper describes studies based on the hypothesis that the immunogenicity of the gonococcus is impaired by a component toxic to immunocytes. Cytoplasm of colony type 1 gonococci was found to contain a protein fraction beta+t not present in colony type 4 gonococci. From the results of further analysis it is tentatively deduced that beta+t consists of a toxic component Tbeta-t and an immunogen.
