Abstract

We examined 47 strains by performing a numerical analysis of 101 features. The similarity among all of the strains was very high, and these strains formed a single phenon with a simple matching coefficient of more than 0.875 when average-linkage cluster analysis was used. The strains were distinct from several reference enteric bacteria, including representative strains. The guanosine-plus-cytosine contents of the deoxyribonucleic acids from nine strains were 43.6 to 47.9 mol% (mean ± standard deviation, 45.3 ± 1.3 mol%).
