ABSTRACT: Cell wall associated proteins of various Mycobacterium species were isolated and characterized by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting to identify different strains/species of mycobacteria. Different species of mycobacterium were clearly distinguished, and only minor differences between two strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were obtained. Also, M.tuberculosis and M.bovis BCG were recognized as single species with high similarity. Western blot analysis revealed that some cell well associated proteins are major immunogenic antigens.
