Abstract

Fifty-nine Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato culture isolates collected from northeastern China were characterized by 5S-23S rRNA intergenic spacer restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis and reactivity with monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Among 59 culture isolates, 30 (50.8%) were Borrelia garinii and 17 (28.8%) were Borrelia afzelii, 2 were mixtures composed of B. garinii with RFLP pattern B and B. garinii with pattern C, and 9 were mixtures composed of B. garinii and B. afzelii. One isolate, ChY13p, produced a unique pattern and was identified as B. garinii based on analyses of 16S rRNA gene sequence, flagellin PCR-RFLP typing, and MAb reactivities. No Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto or Borrelia japonica isolates were detected. The results indicate that
Lyme disease Borrelia species in northeastern China resemble those of Borrelia isolates from far eastern Russia and Japan.
