  • a All strains with species name in parentheses are clinical and human fecal isolates identified as indicated.

  • b For dot blot analysis, the symbols +, −, and +/− indicate that the strains gave positive, negative, and ambiguous signals, respectively.

  • c The letters indicate that these strains were used in FISH tests and hybridized positively (P), negatively (N), or ambiguously (P/N) with the corresponding probes.

  • d Fusobacterium nucleatum subsp.polymorphum.
