A study of the enzymatic profile of soil isolates of Nocardia asteroides






Mycopathologia 143(3): 151-154

A study of the enzymatic profile of soil isolates of Nocardia asteroides

The API-ZYM system was used to study the enzyme profile of 42 soil isolates and 2 clinical isolates of N. asteroides. Of the 19 enzymes tested, only 7 were demonstrable in >90% of the soil isolates.
