Abstract

The ribosomal proteins from 11 strains representing various numerical taxonomic clusters were compared by two-dimensional PAGE. The protein patterns were specific for each species and were unaffected by acridine dye treatment, suggesting genetic stability of ribosomal proteins. An attempt was made to identify one strain of by both traditional taxonomic methods and analysis of the ribosomal protein patterns. Both methods identified the strain as , and protein pattern analysis also showed that was closely related to this species. The practical application of ribosomal protein patterns in taxonomy was therefore demonstrated.
