Abstract

Whole-cell protein electrophoretic analysis of the type strain of (LMG 15799) revealed that this organism was indistinguishable from strains. Although LMG 15799 (T = type strain) was originally described as serologically untypeable, we found that this strain was a group B streptococcus belonging to the capsular polysaccharide antigen type Ib group. The biochemical reactivity of which differed from the biochemical reactivity of typical strains mainly by being less versatile, is similar to the biochemical reactivity of other group B, type Ib streptococci isolated from Poikilothermic animals, such as fish and frogs.
