Title: Isolation and phylogenetic analysis of arcobacter spp. in ground chicken meat and environmental water in Japan and Thailand
Volume: 48

Remarks: Prevalence of Arcobacter spp. in chicken meat samples and environmental water samples in Japan and Thailand was investigated. Arcobacter was isolated from 48% of chicken meat samples (20/41) and 23% of river water samples (4/17) from Japan, and 100% of chicken meat samples (10/10) and 100% of canal water samples (7/7) from Thailand. A. butzleri was among the species isolated from all positive samples. About 10% genetic diversity was seen in the rpoB-rpoC in Arcobacters, and phylogenetic trees were divided into two clusters. In both countries, the results suggested that chicken and environmental water were highly contaminated with a genetically diverse population of Arcobacter.

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.

Contact us if you want to discuss commercial use of the cultures.
