SUMMARY: Fifty-two strains of were examined for their enzyme electrophoretic patterns of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) and malate dehydrogenase (MDH). All strains tested possessed high levels of both enzymes but the G6PDH reduced NADP whereas MDH was NAD-dependent. Twenty-seven strains produced single bands of both G6PDH and MDH. In all cases G6PDH migrated faster than MDH. Strains clustered by a single linkage algorithm were recovered in eight clusters at the 77% similarity level. The remaining 25 strains produced multiple bands of one or both enzymes. These were recovered in six clusters at the 72% similarity level using the same algorithm. The results of this study revealed considerable heterogeneity of enzyme patterns within .
