[en] Streptococcus difficile ; Streptococcus agalactiae
[en] Whole-cell protein electrophoretic analysis of the type strain of Streptococcus difficile (LMG 15799) revealed
that this organism was indistinguishable from Streptococcus agalactiae strains. Although LMG 15799'r (T =
type strain) was originally described as serologically untypeable, we found that this strain was a group B
streptococcus belonging to the capsular polysaccharide antigen type Ib group. The biochemical reactivity of S.difficile, which differed from the biochemical reactivity of typical S. agalactiae strains mainly by being less
versatile, is similar to the biochemical reactivity of other group B, type Ib streptococci isolated from poikilothermic animals, such as fish and frogs.
