Abstract

Proliferative ileitis of hamsters is consistently associated with the presence of intracellular bacteria in affected ileal epithelial cells. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of the putative etiologic agent of proliferative ileitis was determined by using cell culture-maintained organisms. The highest level of relatedness (98.4%) was observed with a newly described obligately intracellular bacterium obtained from porcine intestines, and the level of homology with was 87.5%.
