Characterization of Bacillus anthracis isolated in Korea using biochemical and serological techniques



Characterization of Bacillus anthracis isolated in Korea using biochemical and serological techniques



Journal of the Korean Society for Microbiology 31(4): 415-422



We have confirmed five Bacillus anthracis strains, Cheju, Bongchun, Haman, Kyungjoo, and Hongsung isolated in Korea. These strains have been revealed to possess toxins and capsule, and to have a great homology of their morphological, physiological and biochemical properties against B. anthracis type strain A70. These strains were identified as B. anthracis due to the pathogenicity against to mice and guinea-pigs. These strains were recognized as B. anthracis antigens by the antibody of Pasteur No. 2 Army using double-immunodiffusion assay.
