Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the possibility of using biochemical differences among strains of a given serotype of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae as epidemiological markers, to rapidly identify the source of infection in herds affected with swine pleuropneumonia. Out of 38 different biochemical and physiological tests performed on a total of 67 strains belonging to serotypes 1 and 5 of A. pleuropneumoniae, three fermentation tests, glycerol, lactose and raffinose, allowed the classification of serotype 1 strains into 6 phenotypic groups and serotype 5 strains into 4 of these groups. Groups II and III were exclusively composed of serotype 1 strains, whereas the majority of strains in groups I and IV belonged to serotypes 1 and 5 respectively, the latter comprising almost all the serotype 5 studied.
