leptospirosis in rattus norvegicus and rattus rattus in israel.leptospires were isolated from 21.2% of rattus norvegicus (the brown rat) and 9.9% of rattus rattus trapped in a survey of urban and rural areas in israel. microagglutination antibodies were found in sera of 9.4 and 8.1% of these rats, respectively. the 191 strains isolated belonged to six serogroups: leptospira icterohaemorrhagiae (169), l. bataviae (3), l. semeranga (1), l andamana (1) and l. ballum (1) from r. norvegicus and l. ballum (13) and l. hebdomadis (3) from r. rattus. no significant ...19827068359
isolation and genetic characterization of a bartonella strain closely related to bartonella tribocorum and bartonella elizabethae in israeli commensal rats.ten bartonella isolates were cultured from blood drawn from black rats (rattus rattus) captured in the tel aviv area. genetic characterization included amplification and sequencing of five gene fragments including the ribc, rpob, 16s, groel, and glta and the 16s-23s intergenic spacer region. sequence comparisons showed that all 10 isolates were identical in all genes studied comprising a total of 3,873 bp analyzed. the sequences of each of the partial genes analyzed indicated a high sequence sim ...200919556567
