Abstract

SUMMARY: The relationship of the enterobacterium A 12 (Sachs) to 14 is shown by comparison of their biochemical and serological reactions. The aerogenic, mannitol-negative A 12 is serologically identical with the typical Shigella serotype, 14. As mannitol-negative strains of 14 exist and as the aerogenic A 12 organism is otherwise biochemically typical of the group, it is proposed that A 12 be regarded as a biochemical variety of 14 analogous to the accepted aerogenic biochemical varieties of 6.
