Abstract

The similarities among five strains of Streptomyces were measured by the serological methods. Antigens were prepared by dissolving cell envelope fractions in Tween 20 buffer and antisera were produced from the immunized rabbits. Immunodiffusion studies and ELISA results showed that the degree of antigen-antibody reaction was not exactly matched to the taxonomic distance; i. e. the strains of the cluster group A exhibited low level of cross-reactions each other, while relatively strong cross-reactions were observed between Streptomyces lavendulae of cluster group F and Streptomyces viridochromogenes of cluster group A.
