Abstract

Summary: Eleven out of 43 strains of from clinical sources did not produce lecithinase activity and were not toxic to mice. However, these strains did belong to the group and could readily be differentiated from and on the basis of DNA-DNA homologies, carbohydrate fermentation patterns, enzyme activities, GLC analysis of fatty acid fermentation products and the electrophoretic analysis of whole cell protein extracts.
