Abstract

The biochemical properties of 39 strains of from chickens were determined. All the strains produced acid from fructose, galactose, glucose and mannose but not from lactose. Variable reactions were found for arabinose, maltose, mannitol, sorbitol, trehalose and xylose. No strains showed urease activity or produced indole, while -galactosidase and/or ornithine decarboxylase activity was present in some strains. This variability allowed the recognition of 15 biochemical biovars including some not previously recognized in . Only 25 (64%) of the strains could be assigned to the three species ( and species A) recently proposed to replace .
