Printed in Great Britain Isolation and characterization of Bordetella parapertussis-like bacteria from ovine lungs

By John F. Porter, Kathleen Connor and Willie Donachie


Bacteria resembling two Bordetella species were isolated from both normal and pneumonic ovine lungs using a selective charcoal agar. Twenty-eight of the 33 isolates showed similarities to stock NCTC B. parapertussis strains in their SDS-PAGE gel protein profiles, in their biochemical reactions and in causing browning on tyrosine agar. Five isolates behaved similarly to stock B. bronchiseptica strains, in being actively motile, in giving identical positive reactions in three out of four biochemical tests and in causing no colour change in tyrosine agar. Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis separated the isolates into two electrophoretic types distinguishable from those of stock B. parapertussis and stock B. bronchiseptica strains
