The gene organization in the lipopolysaccharide biosynthetic (rfb) locus was analyzed in seven Leptospira interrogans serovars within serogroup Icterohemorrhagiae, seven non-Icterohemorrhagiae serovars and one Leptospira borgpetersenii serovar. Two groups of loci were delineated based on DNA hybridization and sequence analysis. Group 1 contained the two Hardjo subtypes, Hardjoprajitno and Hardjobovis. Group 2 (containing Copenhageni, Pomona, Naam, Mwogolo, Smithi, Lai, Canicola, Autumnalis… CONTINUE READING
