  • a Derivatives are indented in column 1.

  • b Scored as lysis observed (+) or not observed (-) in a spot assay using routine test dilution of typing phage.

  • c As assessed by using a Craigie tube.

  • d Heat-stable serotype as determined by the method of Frost et al. (18). HSUT, untypeable by heat-stable serotype.

  • e PFGE was carried out according to the method of Gibson et al. (20); types were defined on the basis of one or more band pattern differences using the method of Peters et al. (43).
