Huanuco M 4 1979
The strain was isolated by Hidalgo in November 1974 from an opossum (Philander opossum) trapped in the Huanuco department of Peru. In 1975 the strain was sent to Chernukha in Moscow for further serological identification. On the basis of those results it was described as a new serovar named huanuco, with reference strain M 4 and was
proposed to belong to a new serogroup Huanuco (Agirre et al., 1979).
Because the strain shows some serological relationship with certain strains of the Grippotyphosa serogroup, especially with Kipod 179, it was tentatively placed in the Grippotyphosa group. As it was not yet confirmed by a RL the TSC (Manchester, 1986) accepted it on a provisional basis and the serovar was therefore marked (+) in the Revised List of Serovars of 1988. It has since been fully confirmed and appears in the attached updated list unconditionally (TSC, Osaka, 1990).
+ Provisional status; serovars validly described but not yet confirmed by serological typing results of a Reference (Ref.) Laboratory (Lab.) even as the original description was based on the typing results of a Ref. Lab.
