A new leptospiral serovar in the Icterohaemorrhagiae serogroup isolated from an ox in Zimbabwe


, : A new leptospiral serovar in the Icterohaemorrhagiae serogroup isolated from an ox in Zimbabwe. International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology 43(1): 179-182

A strain of Leptospira interrogans that was isolated from an ox slaughtered in Zimbabwe and belonged to serogroup Icterohaemorrhagiae could not be identified when we compared it with 18 reference strains belonging to this serogroup by using cross-agglutinin absorption, monoclonal antibody, and restriction endonuclease DNA analyses. The name zimbabwe is proposed for the new serovar containing this strain; the type strain of this serovar is strain SBF 23.

The distribution of the antidepressant drug nortriptyline (NT) and its main metabolite E-10-hydroxy-nortriptyline (E-10-OH-NT) across the blood-brain barrier was considered in relation to inhibition of the multidrug transporter P-glycoprotein (P-g...
