Thirty five strains of the host adapted Salmonella serotype Dublin (S. Dublin) have been characterized by IS200 patterns, ribotyping, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), restriction fragment polymorphism after hybridization with five randomly cloned DNA-fragments of S. enteritidis (RFLP), and plasmid profiling in order to divide the strains into 'genomic lines'. For comparison, 20 other strains of 9 different group-D serotypes were included. The IS200 patterns were identical in all strains of S. Dublin examined. These patterns were different from those observed in other group-D Salmonella with the exception of one strain S. Enteritidis phage type 11 and a strain of S. Rostock. The insertion element IS200 was not detected in strains of S. Dar-es-Salam, S. (II) 9,12:z:-, and S. Panama. RFLP, based on probing with five random cloned chromosomal fragments gave the same pattern in all strains except for one isolate from the UK. This strain was also found to have an unique PFGE pattern and ribotype. Among the remaining strains, three different PFGE patterns and 7 different ribotypes were observed. Based on all four typing methods, 8 different 'genomic lines' of S. Dublin were identified. The same grouping could be obtained from the use of ribotyping alone, but PFGE and RFLP were found to provide valuable information on possible relationships between ribotypes. Seven different plasmid profiles and a group of strains without plasmids were observed. In several cases, the same plasmid profile was shown to be present in more than one 'genomic line'.
