Abstract

The 16S rRNA genes from virulent (AB) and benign (B) biotype strains of , the causative agent of ovine foot abscess, were cloned and sequenced. Notwithstanding the distinct phenotypic differences between the AB and B biotypes, a phylogenetic analysis in which the 16S rRNA gene sequences were used revealed the close relationship of these taxa. Comparison of the virulent and benign biotypes of may therefore be a legitimate way to identify key virulence factors useful in vaccine development.
