Restriction endonuclease analysis of virulence plasmid DNA was used to study the epidemiology of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis infections. The origin of Y. pseudotuberculosis could be divided into two focus areas: Eastern Asia and Europe. Wild animals were an important reservoir for the Y. pseudotuberculosis seen in infections in humans.
