Baldassi, L.Barbosa, M.L.Bach, E.E.Iaria, S.T.

Eighty-nine of 144 isolates of Clostridium perfringens obtained from 187 samples of 71 bovine in several Brazilian states were submitted to esterase electrophoresis for typing. Mobilites electrophoresis, as parameter, were settled down by isolates from ATCC pattern of types A, B, C, and D. Of the 89 isolates, 43 (48.3%) were characterized as electrophoretic type A, 20 (22.5%) as D, 18 (20.2%) as C, and 3 (3.4%) as B. Five (5.6%) isolates did not identity with any type. Similarly, esterase electrophoresis enabled the typing of 94.4 % of the isolates, demonstrating to be an appropriate method for animal sample analyses.
