Differences in genomic macrorestriction patterns of arabinose-positive (Burkholderia thailandensis) and arabinose-negative Burkholderia pseudomallei.

Abstract:

We reported previously two biochemically and antigenically distinct biotypes of Burkholderia pseudomallei. These two distinct biotypes could be distinguished by their ability to assimilate L-arabinose. Some B. pseudomallei isolated from soil samples could utilize this substrate (Ara+), whereas the other soil isolates and all clinical isolates could not (Ara-). Only the Ara isolates were virulent in animals and reacted with monoclonal antibody directed at the surface envelope, most likely the ...
