    Within the family Pasteurellaceae Pohl 1981 most taxa seem to be host specific. The aim of the present study was to investigate if bovine and ovine isolates of Actinobacillus lignieresii represent host specific subclones of this taxon. For comparison and to investigate the diagnostic potential of AFLP equine isolates of A. lignieresii classified as genomospecies 1 were included. This is the first study on molecular typing of A. lignieresii. Results of the present study have demonstrated: (i) substantial differences in genomic composition of Actinobacillus genomospecies 1 and A. lignieresii isolates, (ii) high degree of genomic diversity among isolates of genomospecies 1 and (iii) moderate genomic diversity and existence of stable clonal lines among A.lignieresii isolates.
