Els aillaments de H. parasuis poden presentar diferents fenotips (per exemple diferent perfil de proteines, morfologia de colonia o be produccio de capsula) i diferent capacitat patogenica.

Typing of Haemophilus parasuis strains by PCR-RFLP analysis of the tbpA gene.

The sensitivity, typeability, high degree of discrimination, simplicity and low cost per test make this PCR-RFLP assay a useful method for typing H. parasuis and, therefore, for studying the epidemiology of outbreaks of Glässer's disease.

Haemophilus parasuis: new trends on diagnosis, epidemiology and control.

Study of the population structure of Haemophilus parasuis by multilocus sequence typing.

The high genetic heterogeneity of this bacterium was confirmed with MLST, since the strains were divided into 109 sequence types, and only 13 small clonal complexes were detected by the Burst algorithm.

Genotypic Diversity of Haemophilus parasuis Field Strains

The analysis of partial sequences of hsp60 and 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed the presence of a separate lineage of virulent strains and indicated the occurrence of lateral gene transfer among H. parasuis and Actinobacillus strains.

Application of ERIC-PCR for the comparison of isolates of Haemophilus parasuis.

This study has shown, for the first time, that ERIC-PCR is a suitable technique for the sub-typing of H parasuis and useful for studying the epidemiology of outbreaks of Glässer's disease.

Designation of 15 serovars of Haemophilus parasuis on the basis of immunodiffusion using heat-stable antigen extracts

Intraperitoneal inoculation of specific-pathogen-free pigs with cells representing the 15 serovars indicated differences in virulence which may be serovar related, and the existence of 15 distinct serologic groups was apparent.

Characterization of the diversity of Haemophilus parasuis field isolates by use of serotyping and genotyping.

Although H parasuis had high genetic diversity overall, only a few strains caused disease in these herds and the ERIC-PCR technique was more discriminative than serotyping, and a broad genetic variety was observed within particular serovar groups.

[Relationship between serotype, virulence and SDS-PAGE protein patterns of Haemophilus parasuis].

The dot-blot results point to a participation of non-immunogenic polysaccharides in the detection reaction of parasuis-like strains, which proved to be highly virulent in SPF pigs, while the other serotypes were found to be nonvirulent.

The present study corroborates the existence of a unique group of major proteins in potentially virulent H. parasuis isolates and evaluates the relationship between polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) type and virulence potential based on isolation site.
