Abstract

Electrophoretic profiles of soluble proteins derived from seven strains of , and the psychrophile, , were compared. The profiles produced from the strains of showed a marked similarity except for that of strain Ne4 (ATCC 23246) which was distinguishable from those of the other six strains. Species-specific profiles demonstrating no characteristic species-related banding patterns were obtained from the soluble proteins of and The profile from was likewise specific and species distinct from those of the other bacteria tested. Identification of natural taxonomic interrelationships between these bacteria as determined by the electrophoretic separation of proteins are discussed.
