Mozdok 5621 1965
The strain was isolated in 1961 from the kidney of a common field vole (Microtus arvalis), trapped in the Mozdok district of North Ossetica, Soviet Union, by Semenova (1965), who considered it to be a subserovar of pomona. Chernukha (1966) confirmed its separate status. However, in comparative studies Kmety (1970) did not find sufficient serological differences between strain 5621 and Pomona to justify its separate status. Similar findings were reported by Borg-Petersen (1974). In contrast Nicolescu and Moldoveanu (1974) confirmed again its separate status, which was supported by comparative factor analysis studies of Manev (1976). Terpstra carried out studies with monoclonal antibodies and considered the strain to be a separate serovar (Terpstra et al., 1987). The strain was already included in the list of 1967 under provisional status, and was recognized as representing a separate serovar by the TSC in 1986.
