RAMOS, Daniela Fernandes et al. Molecular typing of Mycobacterium bovis isolated in the south of Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2014, vol.45, n.2, pp.657-660. ISSN 1517-8382.

Bovine tuberculosis is a major infectious disease of the cattle. In this study, 85 M. bovis isolates from 162 lymph nodes, obtained from a herd of cattle on a farm in southern Brazil, were evaluated using spoligotyping and VNTR. The strains were grouped into five clusters and five orphans, showing a heterogenic genetic profile, what could represent diverse geographic origins of the introduced cows and/or the frequent movement of cattle between different properties.

Keywords : bovine tuberculosis; Mycobacterium bovis; genotyping.
