Abstract

In the present investigation 19 and 22 A. equi-cultures isolated fromdiseased horses and humans, respectively, could be correctly identified by their morphological, biochemical and serological properties. Therod-coccus life cycle appeared to be a common feature of almost all cultures investigated. The cultures were typeable with the typing system described by Prescott (1981). The predominant serotypes among the R.equi-isolates belonged to serotypes 1 and 2. Among the R. equi-isolates from horses haemagglutination-positive cultures were mainly found among isolates of serotype 1, these of serotype 2 were haemagglutination-negative. The R, equi-cultures isolated from humans showed no relation between serotype and haemagglutinating properties. Determination ofantibiotic susceptibility revealed that all cultures were susceptibleto erythromycin, gentamicin, imipenem, minocycline, neomycin, rifampicin, streptomycin and vancomycin, 71% and 75% were resistant or at least moderate susceptible to tetracycline and penicillin G, respectively. Almost all cultures were resistant to ceftazidime and most cultures were susceptible to cefotaxime. The cultures could be further characterized by restriction endonuclease digestion and pulsed field gel electrophoresis of their chromosomal DNA. After digestion with the restriction enzyme AsnI the resulting DNA-profile allowed a strain-specific characterization.
