Sixty strains of Riemerella anatipestifer were isolated from ducks and geese with infectious serositis in Taiwan. Sixty per cent of the isolates (36/60) contained a 3.9 b plasmid, 12% (7/60) contained 6.5 b and 16 b plasmids, 5% (3/60) contained 2.9, 16 and 18 b plasmids and 13% contained no plasmid (14/60). The 3.9 b plasmid (designated as pCFC1) was completely sequenced to determine if it encoded virulence factors. pCFC1 was 27% G-C and had four large open reading frames (ORF). Two of the… CONTINUE READING
