Abstract

The cellular proteins of eight strains of and seven strains of were analyzed by two-dimensional electrophoresis and silver staining. The electrophoretic patterns of and were so different that distinction between these closely related bacteria could easily be made. There were also minor quantitative and qualitative differences in the protein patterns of strains within both species, enabling, particularly, strains FDC 2097 and FDC Y4 and strains ATCC 19415, FDC 626, and FDC 621 to be singled out.
