Abstract

SUMMARY

The lactic dehydrogenases of 11 strains of the genus were examined. All possessed a (–) but no (+) NAD-dependent lactic dehydro-genase, and three strains (1 and 2 ) also had (–) and (+) NAD-independent lactic dehydrogenases. The NAD-dependent enzyme of the seven strains belonging to the species , , , and moved together during electrophoresis in acrylamide gel. The enzymes of the other four strains, all , were close together but widely separated from the enzyme of the other species. One strain of oxidized NADH without added pyruvate. The enzyme responsible was located after electro-phoresis.
