Under axenic growth all 14 syngens of Paramecium aurelia have 4 types of esterases. The three major types (A, B and cathodal C) vary independently in electrophoretic mobility among the syngens. Using these three esterases, stocks can be keyed to a syngen, except for the groupings 1-3-5 and 7-13. Using 5 other enzymes only syngens 1 and 5 cannot be distinguished. Most syngens differ from each other in 6 out of the 8 enzymes. An axenically-grown stock of Paramecium multimicronucleatum collected… CONTINUE READING
