Abstract

The reference strains Type A and Type B and two equine strains of were examined for a wide range of isoenzymes using thin-layer starch-gel electrophoresis; in addition two isoenzymes were examined in two strains of The type strains A and B of were differentiated by their lactate dehydrogenase, phosphogluco-mutase and aspartate aminotransferase patterns and the two equine strains by their hexo-kinase, lactate dehydrogenase and phosphoglycerate kinase patterns. The two pairs of strains differed from one another with respect to hexokinase, phosphoglucomutase, adenylate kinase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. The two strains of could be distinguished by their isoenzymes of hexokinase. The two species were differentiated by their hexokinase and phosphoglucomutase patterns.
