Abstract

Restriction fragment length polymorphisms of the 16S rRNA genes of strains were studied by cleavage of the chromosomal DNA with restriction endonuclease RI, followed by hybridization to a 420-bp internal fragment of the 16S rRNA gene. Thirty-two type and reference strains were classified, together with seven field strains. Reference strains of all serotypes and the type strains of and were included. Nine ribopatterns were observed. Pattern A was represented by 16 strains and included strains of serotypes 1b, 2 to 8, 11 to 13, 15 to 17, 19, and 23. Pattern B was represented by two strains (serotypes la and 9). Pattern C was represented by five strains (serotypes 5, 6, and 21). Pattern D was represented by one strain of serotype 4. Pattern E was represented by 11 strains of serotypes 2, 7, 10, 20, 22, 24, and 25. Patterns F, G, H, and I were each represented by a single strain of serotypes 26,2,18, and 3, respectively. All the different ribopatterns had some bands in common. Patterns B, C, and D were most similar to pattern A, while patterns F, G, H, and I resembled pattern E. Partial sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene of nine selected strains resulted in three different sequences, i.e., the typical sequence, the sequence, and a third sequence found for two strains. Strains of the same serotype were found to have different ribopatterns as well as different partial 16S rDNA sequences.
