ribotyping and restriction endonuclease analysis reveal a novel clone of bordetella bronchiseptica in seals.the goal of the present study was to characterize, by ribotyping and restriction endonuclease analysis (rea), 35 phocine bordetella bronchiseptica isolates and to ascertain their relationship to one another and to isolates acquired from other host species. thirty-four isolates were obtained in scotland during a 10-year period encompassing the 1988 epizootic; the remaining isolate was obtained independently in denmark. all phocine isolates had an identical pvu ii ribotype unique from the 18 ribot ...200011108453
