Keywords:Salmonella, Isolation, Characterization, PCR, ST gene, Pig, Antibiogram
AbstractCharacterization of Salmonella isolated from pigs was conducted between January to November, 2008 in the district of Mymensingh. Out of 23 pigs examined, only 4 (17.39) pigs had Salmonella infection. Genome analysis using PCR revealed that ST gene of enterotoxin was absent in some strains of pigs Salmonella but it's not clear whether the serovars belongs to Salmonella (S.) choleraesuis, S. typhimurium or S. derby. The isolates were found to be highly sensitive to ciprofloxacin, kanamycin, nalidixic acid, co-trimoxazole and cephalexin but highly resistant to chloramphenicol.
