A total of 101 strains of Salmonella Enteritidis phage types (PT) 1, 4, 6, and 8 from Denmark, England and Spain were studied by PFGE to elucidate genetic relationships among strains isolated from animal, human and environmental sources between 1983 and 1997. Analysis with Xba I, Bln I and Spe I enzymes showed that the power of discrimination of this method was increased by the combination of the three enzymes (D=0.802), subdividing the strains into 28 genomic groups or genotypes. Many of the… CONTINUE READING
