The newly found group A st4545 sequence was more similar to various group G streptococcal emm sequences than to known group A emm sequences. One group G isolate had a previously found group G 5' emm sequence (stLG6, accession number U25741). The nongroupable Streptococcus had an emm sequence previously associated with group L Streptococcus (Beall and Facklam… CONTINUE READING
