Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MEE) uses the relative electrophoretic mobilities of intracellular enzymes to characterize and differentiate organisms by generating an electromorph type (ET). This article presents the chemical conditions that may be useful, a guide to the successful practice of the electrophoretic technique, and analysis of the results.
