Atypical isolates of brucella abortus from canada and the usa characterized as dye sensitive with m antigen dominant



Atypical isolates of brucella abortus from canada and the usa characterized as dye sensitive with m antigen dominant



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 25(4): 698-701



A total of 41 Brucella isolates, examined by standard biotyping procedures, were found to be similar to Brucella abortus biovar 2 in dye sensitivity but had a dominant M antigen. Oxidative metabolic tests performed on 39 of the isolates confirmed them as B. abortus. Additional biochemical and bacteriophage susceptibility studies were performed on 35 of the isolates. The isolates had identical reactions in the various tests, except for one isolate which was resistant to lysis by all phage strains used. Two isolates were injected into guinea pigs and shown to be virulent. The isolates described in this study appear similar to atypical Brucella isolates previously reported in the United Kingdom and the United States and may form the basis of a new biovar, B. abortus biovar 10.
