Abstract
To define relationships between Listeria monocytogenes genetic lineages, ri botypes, and serotypes, 235 L. monocytogenes isolates were characterized by serotyping and automated EcoRI ribotyping. Genetic lineage predicted the f ollowing serovar clusters: lineage I, comprising serotypes 1/2b, 3b, 3c, an d 4b; lineage II, comprising serotypes 1/2a, 1/2c, and 3a; and lineage III, comprising serotypes 3a and Ic. Some EcoRI ribotypes contained multiple se rotypes; a subset of these isolates was further differentiated with PvuII r ibotyping. Of the 12: resultant EcoRI-PvuII combination types, only 4 conta ined multiple serotypes, demonstrating the potential of ribotyping for sero type prediction.
