Epidemiological markers of strains of Salmonella are classified as major or minor. Major epidemiological markers are determined by chromosomal genes and are not affected by extrachromosomal elements. They are subspecies and serovars. Minor epidemiological markers are either affected by extrachromosomal replicons or have an insufficiently proven genetic(More)
A total of 358 Salmonella strains belonging to subspecies I (other than "S. typhisuis") and possessing the 6,7:c:1,5 antigenic factors were studied on the basis of their classical biochemical characters and their subfactors of the H:c antigen. They were classified into 4 homogeneous taxa which can be differentiated by the use of three characters: production(More)
In Escherichia coli K-12, the receptor for phage lambda is an outer membrane protein which inactivates the phage in vitro. Lambda receptor activity was found in extracts from all wild strains of E. coli tested, although most of them fail to support growth of the phage. In some cases this failure is due to a masking of the receptor in vivo, the bacteria(More)
38,343 strains of Salmonella (34,138 isolated in Metropolitan France) were examined at the national Salmonella Centre (Pasteur Institute, Paris), during the years 1973 to 1976. The origins are scheduled in this report according to the serotypes classified in alphabetical order with O groups of Kauffmann-White schema. Incidence of II and IV subgenera is low.(More)
A collection of 88 Salmonella reference strains including the so-called subgenus I (20 strains), subgenus II (21 strains), subgenus III (= Arizona, 21 strains), subgenus IV (20 strains) and 6 atypical strains (bongor group) was submitted to 90 carbon source utilization tests and 41 biochemical tests. A cluster analysis (Jaccard coefficient, clustering(More)
Polynucleotide sequence relatedness studies were carried out to determine the extent of divergence present in Salmonella sub-genus IV strains, related strains of Salmonella of other sub-genera and the Citrobacter genus. Salmonella sub-genus IV were 91-97% related. The Salmonella of sub-genus I, II and III showed lower binding (79-87%) to Salmonella(More)
Eleven Salmonella typhi isolates were recovered from patients with typhoid in Indonesia. These motile isolates had neither H:d nor H:j antigen but had a new H antigen, designated Z66 in this paper. After passage through semi-solid agar medium with anti-Z66 serum (in U-tube), 7 strains were agglutinable by H:d antiserum. No strain was able to express the(More)
A study of 186 strains belonging to eleven genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae and to three genera of the family Vibrionaceae has been carried out in order to determine their "versatility" towards 146 organic substrates tested as sole source of carbon and energy. Glucose was the only substrate used by all the strains; gluconate and glycerol were used by(More)
Salmonella serovar Tonev (antigenic formula, 21,54:b:e,n,x) is classified in the Salmonella group O:54, and contains a 7.5-kilobase plasmid, designated pIP1340. Tonev NV, a variant lacking pIP1340, failed to express O:54 (antigenic formula identical with that of serovar Minnesota, 21:b:e,n,x). Phenotypic tagging of plasmid pIP1340 by transposon Tn5 produced(More)
