Lack of evidence for the occurrence of Pasteurella ureae in rodents.

The taxonomy of five typical human isolates of Pasteurella ureae, one strain of Actinobacillus hominis, and three murine isolates which had been designated as Pasteurella ureae in published reports were re-examined. Their taxonomic relationships were investigated by both conventional phenotypic characterization and by DNA/DNA hybridization using the renaturation method. The human Pasteurella urea strains were highly homogeneous in their phenotypes and in their DNA reassociation. The strain of Actinobacillus hominis studied was genetically distinct from Pasteurella ureae, but was located, like Pasteurella ureae, in the Actinobacillus group. The remaining strains exhibited only low DNA relatedness with Pasteurella ureae and each other; this agreed with their phenotypic divergence. Two of the murine isolates were identified as indole-negative variant strains of Pasteurella pneumotropica sensu stricto (i.e., type Jawetz), or of the type Heyl of Pasteurella pneumotropica, respectively. The remaining murine isolate appears to represent a hitherto unrecognized species of Pasteurellaceae. So far, there is no evidence for the occurrence of Pasteurella ureae outside the human host.[1]
