Abstract

FIGUEIREDO, H. C. P. et al. Streptococcus iniae outbreaks in Brazilian Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L: ) farms. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2012, vol.43, n.2, pp. 576-580. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822012000200019.

This is the first report of outbreaks of Streptococcus iniae in Nile tilapia farms in South America. Seven isolates were identified by biochemical, serological and molecular tests. Their 16S rRNA gene sequences showed 100% similarity with S. iniae ATCC 29178 and two distinct PFGE patterns were observed for Brazilian isolates.

Keywords : Brazil; infection; MIC; PFGE; phylogenetic analysis; tilapia.
