The production of extracellular nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide glycohydrolase (NADG) and the cell-bound lipoproteinase (serum opacity reaction, SOR) by strains of different serological types of group A streptococci, in relation to the T typing, was studied. The production of both NADG and SOR, or only one of them, was found to be characteristic of serotypes, as determined by M and T antigen. No difference in the production of these enzymes was found in relation to M-positive and M-negative variants. Investigation into NADG and SOR production as related to the T type enabled the division of a single agglutination pattern into four main groups, each of which corresponds to one specific M type or more. Of the 370 strains belonging to 12 different T-agglutination patterns, 21% produced both enzymes and 42.5% failed to produce any of them, whereas the remaining 36.5% produced only one out of the two enzymes. Five streptococcal types which did not produce NADG and SOR also failed to synthesize streptolysin S at the early logarithmic phase of growth, indicating that streptolysin S production by young cultures may be also related to serotype. No correlation was found between the production of NADG-SOR as related to serotype and the production of streptolysin O, acid phosphotase, esterase, N-acetylglucosaminidase, hyaluronidase, streptokinase, and the cell-sensitizing factor. The practical and potential usefulness of NADG and SOR production in epidemiological studies is discussed.
