Whole-cell protein electrophoretic analysis of the type strain of Streptococcus difficile (LMG 15799) revealed that this organism was indistinguishable from Streptococcus agalactiae strains. Although LMG 15799T (T = type strain) was originally described as serologically untypeable, we found that this strain was a group B streptococcus belonging to the capsular polysaccharide antigen type Ib group. The biochemical reactivity of S. difficile, which differed from the biochemical reactivity of… CONTINUE READING
