Strain FhSp1T, isolated from human blood in Spain in 2003, was studied for its taxonomic allocation. By 16S rRNA and recA gene sequencing, the strain was shown to belong to the genus Francisella. In the 16S rRNA gene sequence, Francisella sp. FhSp1T shared similarity of more than 99% with strains of Francisella tularensis subspecies and Francisella novicida U112T, 98% with Francisella piscicida GM2212T and 98.4% with Francisella philomiragia ATCC 25015T. In the recA gene sequence, Francisella… CONTINUE READING
