Abstract

Summary

Pyogenic streptococci of Lancefield group C or group G from human or animal sources were examined with a view to increasing the number of diagnostic tests useful for their differentiation. Human strains of group G produced L-prolyl-L-arginine aminopeptidase but isolates of (group C) did not. Tests for -L-glutamate aminopeptidase together with fermentation of glycogen or sorbitol distinguished from strains of isolated from animals. It was confirmed that fermentation tests were helpful in the study of and and that enzyme reactions helped distinguish between and the human strains of group G.
