Abstract

consists of at least five distinct subgroups on the basis of serogroups, biotypes, and hosts. A chemotaxonomic and phenotypic examination of 80 strains representing the known diversity within this species and 49 reference strains representing all members of the streptococcal pyogenic species group revealed two subpopulations of strains within . The name subsp. is proposed for strains of animal origin. These strains belong to Lancefield serogroups C and L, are alpha-, beta-, or nonhemolytic, and do not exhibit streptokinase activity on human plasminogen or proteolytic activity on human fibrin. The name subsp. is proposed for human isolates. These strains belong to Lancefield serogroups C and G, are beta-hemolytic, and exhibit streptokinase activity on human plasminogen and proteolytic activity on human fibrin.
