Variation in the chromosomal genomes of 1527 isolates of eight common serotypes (O and H antigen profiles) of Salmonella was assessed by analysis of electrophoretically demonstrable allelic polymorphism at 23 metabolic enzyme loci. Seventy-one distinctive electrophoretic types, representing multilocus genotypes, were identified. A basically clonal population structure was indicated by the presence of strong linkage disequilibrium among enzyme loci, the association of each serotype with a… CONTINUE READING
