Phylogenetic relationships of Campylobacter hyointestinalis subspecies were examined by means of 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Sequence similarities among C. hyointestinalis subsp. lawsonii strains exceeded 99·0%, but values among C. hyointestinalis subsp. hyointestinalis strains ranged from 96·4 to 100%. Sequence similarites between strains representing the two different subspecies ranged from 95·7 to 99·0%. An intervening sequence was identified in certain of the C. hyointestinalis subsp. lawsonii strains. C. hyointestinalis strains occupied two distinct branches in a phylogenetic analysis of the genus Campylobacter, emphasizing the need for multiple strain analysis when using 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons for taxonomic investigations.
The GenBank accession numbers for the 16S rRNA gene sequences determined in this paper are AF097681-AF097691.
