    A stable L-form of Aeromonas salmonicida, which resulted from induction with benzylpenicillin, contained more of an outer membrane protein, with an estimated molecular weight of 40 kDa but less of 47.9 and 38 kDa proteins, than did parental walled cells. In addition, from Western blots, two protein bands reacted strongly with a polyclonal antiserum. The antiserum did not react demonstrably with the band detected in the L-forms on the gels.
