Abstract:

A total of 250 feacal samples of sheep were screened for Listeria ivanovii. On the basis of morphological analysis like colony characteristics, and Gram staining, 10 samples were presumed to be Listeria spp. Biochemical analysis and sugar fermentation patterns characterized these 10 isolates as Listeria spp. and out of these 10 Listeria spp. isolates, two isolates were characterized as Listeria ivanovii. These 2 isolates of Listeria ivanovii were further characterized by haemolysis on 5% sheep blood agar and Christie, Atkins, Munch-Peterson (CAMP) test. The phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC) revealed one isolate of Listeria ivanovii as pathogenic. The prevalence of Listeria spp. was found to be 4% and that of Listeria ivanovii was found to be 0.8%, however, the prevalence of pathogenic Listeria ivanovii was found to be 0.4%.
