Transmission of Streptococcus equi Subspecies zooepidemicus Infection from Horses to Humans
Figure 1. . . . . . . eBURST diagram (http://eburst.mlst.net) of all multilocus sequence typing (MLST) sequence types (STs) for Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus and S. equi subsp. equi recorded in the PubMLST database (http://pubmlst.org/szooepidemicus) (February 7, 2013). Single-locus variants (SLVs) are connected by a solid line. Black circles indicate strains isolated in this study from human cases and 1 horse (ST-10: Hum1, horse isolate 648/11, and Hum2; ST-209: Hum3 isolate). Gray circles indicate strains isolated from horses in this study. SzP protein sequence types were identical (GenBank accession no. AF519488) for the double-locus variants ST-201 and ST-209, whereas the SzP protein STs differed for strains not closely related by MLST (as described in Table 2).
