We investigated the identity of 37 Shigella flexneri strains that had previously been isolated from northern rural Vietnam (Son Tay Province) and described as untypable. Twenty-four isolates reacted with MASF 1c, a monoclonal antibody specific for S. flexneri serotype 1c. A further ten untypable isolates were found to be rough mutants (no longer expressing O-antigen) that were derived from serotype 1c strains. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis demonstrated that these strains consisted of many...[Show more]
