Luis M 6 1984
The strain was isolated in 1970 from the kidney of an opossum (Philander opossum) at Tingo Maria in the Peruvian jungle and described as a new serovar of the Tarassovi group named luis, reference strain M 6, by Liceras de Hidalgo et al. (1984). The strain was later placed in the Shermani group because of its limited relationship to members of the Tarassovi group and its high reactivity with sv Shermani antiserum (Kmety unpublished data). The TSC approved this suggestion in 1986 (Manchester meeting, 1986). Being not yet confirmed by a RL it was included in the list of 1988 under provisional status (+). As its serovar status has now been confirmed by a RL, it is included in the attached updated list, unconditionally.
+ 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.
