Antisera prepared against the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenases of , and were used to measure relationships among the lactic acid bacteria by immunochemical techniques. Our results confirmed the results of earlier phylogenetic studies carried out with anti-fructose diphosphate aldolase sera. We present new data in the form of dendrograms, which, for the first time, include heterofermentative members of the lactic acid bacteria. Previously acquired quantitative data are integrated with our new data to produce a three-dimensional phylogenetic map which shows the relationships of five genera of gram-positive, asporogenous bacteria.
