ABSTRACT: Cell free extracts (CFEs) from different rapidly growing mycobacteria namely, M.fortuitum, M.chelonei, M. vaccae, M.smegmatis, M.phlei and M.duvalii were electrophoresed and stained for proteins as well as lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), esterase, malate dehydrogenase (MDH), malic enzyme (ME), alanine dehydrogenase (Alanine DH), superoxide dismutase (SOD), alcohol dehydrogenase (Alcohol DH) and succinic dehydrogenase (SDH) activity. It was observed that combination of the protein, LDH, esterase and ME produced clearly distinguishable patterns for all the mycobacteria included in the study. Results described in the paper establish a simple electrophoretic technique for rapid identification of fast growing mycobacteria.
