OTTH, Laura; WILSON, Myra  and  FERNANDEZ, Heriberto. Desiccation resistance in Arcobacter butzleri. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2001, vol.32, n.4, pp.311-312. ISSN 1517-8382.

The desiccation resistance of A. butzleri was studied. Two, 3 and 4 of the strains did not resist desiccation for more than 2, 12 and 36 h, respectively. Two strains resisted desiccation for > 48 h. A. butzleri seems to be more resistant to desiccation than the classical enteropathogenic Campylobacter species.

Keywords : Arcobacter butzleri; Campylobacteraceae; desiccation resistance.
