Isolation of atypical genotype Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 6 in Japan.


ABSTRACT: We describe here isolation of genetically atypical serotype 6 Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae in Japan indistinguishable by the multiplex PCR that can discriminate between immunologically cross-reactive serotypes 3, 6 and 8. Nucleotide sequence analysis of capsular export and biosynthesis genes revealed that the atypical isolates have capsular polysaccharide export and synthesis gene sequences that are distinct from those of the serotype 6 reference strain. The atypical strains contain a sequence that is identical with both serotype 3- and 6-specific primers, which causes cross-reactions in multiplex PCR.
