Mycoplasma gallisepticum strain variations detected by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis

Avian Dis. Apr-Jun 1987;31(2):315-20.


Various strains of Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) were examined by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Minor but distinct and reproducible differences in protein banding patterns were detected between strains, which included the vaccine F strain from various sources, an atypical (variant) strain, and the standard (A5969, S6) strains.
