Abstract

Twenty-eight representatives of Listonella (Vibrio) anguillara serovars 01, 02 and 03 were compared by Curie-point pyrolysis mass spectrometry (PyMS). The representatives of serovars 01 and 03 formed discrete, homogeneous groups in ordination plots of the PyMS data. Strains from serovar 02 were recovered in two groups, one of which encompassed six strains including the type strain of the species and the reference strain for serovar 02, and the other included two strains which showed cross-reactions between serovars 02 and 05. The almost complete agreement found between the PyMS and the serological data suggests that pyrolysis mass spectrometry will prove to be an effective method for interstrain comparison within the species Listonella anguillara.
