Malate, isocitrate, glucose-6-phosphate, and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenases of the homogenate prepared from the mycelia of several wild strains of Neurospora crassa have been subjected to zone electrophoresis in starch gel. Four electrophoretically different malate dehydrogenases, a single isocitrate dehydrogenase, three glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenases, and two 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenases were obtained regardless of the strain or the media in which the organism was grown.
