Abstract

The protein content of EDTA extracts from 76 strains of Gram-positive anaerobic cocci was examined using SDS-PAGE. Strains of produced almost identical profiles; greater heterogeneity was observed within the species and , but several strains within each biotype produced similar patterns. Serological investigation of these extracts by ELISA revealed numerous cross-reactions among the different biotypes. Immunoblot transfers from polyacrylamide gels demonstrated two common antigens within strains of the species , but these were not species-specific.
