Abstract

Aminopeptidase activity was demonstrated in extracts of and . The enzyme specificity, which differed amongst the mycoplasma species examined, was characterized using 19 aminoacyl--naphthylamides as substrates. The differences were detected after 4 h incubation with the substrates and potentially could be employed to aid in the characterization of certain mycoplasma species.
