Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae genetic variability within swine production flows
The aim of this study was to assess the genetic variability of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae within various swine production flows. Four M. hyopneumoniae positive production flows, composed of 4 production stages, were selected for this study. Laryngeal and/or bronchial swabs were collected from each production stage within a flow, for a period of 4 months up to 3 years. A multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis was performed to assess the genetic variation of M. hyopneumoniae within and across production flows through the identification of variable-number tandem repeat (VNTR) types. A maximum of 6 M. hyopneumoniae VNTR types were identified in a single flow, in which VNTR types appeared to be flow specific. An identical VNTR type was detected across several production stages for up to 3 years. In this study, minimal M. hyopneumoniae genetic variation was evidenced within and across production flows.
