Electrophoretic Mobility of Mycobacterium Avium Complex Organisms

Abstract:The electrophoretic mobilities (EPMs) of thirty Mycobacterium avium Complex (MAC) organisms isolated from clinical and environmental sources were measured in 9.15 mM KH2PO4 buffered water. The EPMs of fifteen clinical isolates ranged from -1.9 to -5.0 µm cm V-1 s-1 with a mean of -3.1 µm cm V-1 s-1, and the EPMs of fifteen environmental isolates ranged from -1.9 to -4.6 µm cm V-1 s-1 with a mean of -3.3 µm cm V-1 s-1 at pH 7. The EPM of MAC organisms were significantly more negative than other waterborne pathogens (E. coli 0157H:57, Vibrio cholerae, Cryptosporidium parvum) measured under similar experimental conditions.
