Antigenic differences between clinical and environmental isolates of Burkholderia pseudomallei.

Abstract:

Burkholderia pseudomallei is a free-living organism that causes the potentially lethal tropical infection melioidosis. The disease is endemic in many parts of eastern Asia and northern Australia. The presence of two distinct biotypes in soil can be reliably distinguished by their ability to assimilate L-arabinose.
