We studied certain biochemical properties of virulent and avirulent strains of mobile aeromonads. The pathogenic strain featured a higher proportion of odd fatty acids in the lipids, increased protease activity, and a high concentration of 55 kDa protein. We propose that these compounds be used as pathogenic markers of these microorganisms.
