Abstract

SUMMARY

The enzymic activity of 29 strains on 28 substrates is described. The results are compared with those of seven other authors. There is agreement only about the presence of alkaline phosphatase and arginine aminopeptidase and the lack of glycosidases. Possible reasons for the contradictions in the eight reports are discussed.
