Studies on pathogenicity of ascosphaera apis for larvae of the honey bee apis mellifera 1. biochemical properties of ascosphaera apis



Studies on pathogenicity of ascosphaera apis for larvae of the honey bee apis mellifera 1. biochemical properties of ascosphaera apis



Annales Universitatis Mariae Curie Sklodowska Sectio DD Medicina Veterinaria 35-36: 71-82



The assimilation and fermentation of C and N compounds, urease production, arbutine, lipids, chitin and elastin destruction, liquefaction of gelatine, caseine proteolysis, nitrates reduction, production of catalase and hemolytic activity of 109 strains of Ascophaera apis (95 native strains isolated from chalk brood dead larvae and 14 reference strains) were examined. The examination revealed great differences in the biochemical properties among the strains studied.
