Yersinia ruckeri is the aetiological agent of enteric redmouth disease (ERM), an acute to chronic bacteraemic infection of salmonid fish. The O-serotypes of 127 isolates of Y. ruckeri obtained from Europe (96 isolates), North America (23 isolates), Australia (six isolates) and South Africa (two isolates), as well as four reference strains, were determined by slide agglutination test and microplate agglutination assay. A serotyping scheme is proposed based on heat-stable O-antigens; the… CONTINUE READING
