- The bacterium Avibacterium paragallinarum is the etiologic agent of infectious coryza of chickens. Serovar C-1 has emerged in infectious coryza outbreaks in layer hens of Ecuador and Mexico. In the current study, genotyping and phylogenetic analyses of five Ecuadorian and 10 Mexican isolates of Av. paragallinarum serovar C-1 were performed. All 15 isolates share a unique enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus-based-PCR fingerprint and have identical 16S ribosomal RNA and hemagglutinin antigen gene sequences. Results indicate that Ecuadorian and Mexican isolates of serovar C-1 of Av. paragallinarum have a clonal relationship.
