Serotypes and genotypes of 120 C. jejuniisolates from wildlife, humans, and broiler flocksa

  • a Boldface for all fields indicates that isolates are indistinguishable by all typing methods. Use of boldface for some fields indicates that minor differences in one typing result were seen. Brackets indicate that isolates belong to SGs, whereSmaI and KpnI MRPs each could be derived from at least one other MRP within that group by one to three band differences.

  • b ND, not done.

  • c —, unique genotype, not belonging to an SG.

  • d NT, nontypeable.

  • e Type strain, serotype O:38.

  • f 4 comp., serotype O:4 complex.
