Abstract: Let $E,~E^\prime$ be isogenous elliptic curves over ${\mathbb Q}$given by standardized Weierstrass models. We show that (in the obvious notation)

\begin{displaymath}a_1^{\prime}=a_1, \qquad a_2^{\prime} = a_2, \qquad a_3^{\prime} = a_3 \end{displaymath}

and, moreover, that there are integers $t,~w$ such that

\begin{displaymath}a_4^{\prime} = a_4 - 5t~\text{and}~ a_6^{\prime} = a_6 - b_2 t - 7w, \end{displaymath}

where $b_2=a_1^2+4 a_2$.
