Bovine mastitis caused by Prototheca spp. can assume high significance because of economic losses and the potential risk to public health. The aim of our study was to evaluate enzymatic activity of Prototheca zopfii. For this study 15 P. zopfii isolates previously obtained from the cows with clinical and subclinical mastitis in Poland were used. In this study the enzymatic profile of Prototheca species was determined using the API ZYM system. Of the enzymes detected the major percentages were acid phosphatase, leucine arylamidase, naphthol-as-bi-phosphohydrolase, esterase, lipase esterase, valine arylamidase, alkaline phosphatase, and lipase C14.
