Abstract

The 16S rRNA genes of Japanese isolates obtained from various sources and geographical areas were directly sequenced by dideoxynucleotide chain termination methods in which DNA polymerase was used. The levels of sequence similarity among Japanese, European, and American isolates were more than 99%, and the Japanese isolates were identified as strains isolated worldwide, including Japan, were found to be very similar.
