Yersinia ruckeri is the causative agent of enteric redmouth in fish and one of the major bacterial pathogens causing losses in salmonid aquaculture. Previously typing methods, including restriction enzyme analysis, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) have indicated a clonal population structure. In this work, we describe a multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme for Y.ruckeri based on the internal fragment sequence of six housekeeping genes. This MLST… CONTINUE READING
