Listeria monocytogenes strains isolated in Belgium from different foodstuffs and in sporadic cases of human listeriosis were analyzed. The distribution of serovars differed in each of these populations. The bacteria isolated from cheeses and from human patients with listeriosis were further studied by esterase typing. The twenty esterase patterns defined were not equally distributed in these two populations. The secretion of the virulence determinant phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase… CONTINUE READING
