Molecular typing of Yersinia frederiksenii strains by means of 16s rDNA and gyrB genes sequence analyses.


The phenospecies Yersinia frederiksenii is known to comprise three genospecies, indistinguishable on the basis of phenotypic characteristics. In previous works, 13 strains, identified biochemically as Y. frederiksenii, were characterized using Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis and Ribotyping. In order to elucidate the phylogenetic position of these strains… (More)
