Abstract

Antigenic relationships among the 10 species, and were investigated by rocket-line Immunoelectrophoresis, using antigenic extracts prepared from type strains and antisera to and Among the members of the genus and were found to be closely related, and and were the species that were most distantly related to and were in an intermediate position. and shared very low percentages of common antigens with the species. Detection of enzymic activities in immunoprecipitates allowed us to identify some antigens to enzymes and to study the immunological similarities of the enzymes. The malate dehydrogenases of the species were genus specific, and the gIucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenases of most species exhibited antigenic similarities. The esterases of and appeared to be species specific, whereas the esterases and phosphatases of cross-reacted with the esterases and phosphatases of and as did the phosphatases of and The phosphatases of and were antigenically similar.
