Abstract

Total DNAs of 18 strains of from different sources and geographical areas were compared by restriction endonuclease pattern analysis. Fragments obtained with dIII or II were separated by PAGE and stained with silver nitrate. Each strain possessed a unique and reproducible fingerprint with each enzyme, thereby facilitating strain recognition. UPGMA analysis recovered clusters of band patterns that were compared to the distribution of species within the genus
