Anthrax and smallpox have been considered among the most likely biological weapons. The ability of the viral protein hemagglutinin to bind red blood cells together into a detectable matrix may also be characterized as a biochemical test for Communicable disease statistics book infection, although strictly speaking hemagglutinin is not an enzyme and has no metabolic function.
