Yersinia enterocolitica bioserogroup 4/O3 is the predominant causative agent of yersiniosis in Europe and North America. Multiple-locus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA) was developed to improve the resolution power of classical genotyping methods. MLVA based on six loci was able to distinguish 76 genotypes among 91 Y. enterocolitica isolates of worldwide origin and 41 genotypes among 51 nonepidemiologically linked bioserogroup 4/O3 isolates, proving that it has a high resolution… CONTINUE READING
