Abstract :

This study was designed to evaluate the ability of Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus to adhere on the buccalis epithelial cells of monkey and human. Two Streptococcuses equi subsp. zooepidemicus isolated from monkey (K6.73) and human (M6) were used in this study. Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus K6.73 formed large and mucoid colonies in the blood agar, grew as granular sediment with clear supernatant in the fluid medium and had hydrophobic surface by hexadecane test. The M6 strain formed small and rough colonies in the blood agar, grew with uniform turbidity in the fluid medium and had hydrophilic surface. Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus M6 human strain adhered in higher number to epithelial cells isolated from mouth pouches of both monkey and human than K6.73 monkey strain.
