Identification of newly-recognised serotype 1c as the most prevalent Shigella flexneri serotype in northern rural Vietnam
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]
