Abstract

In this study, to increase information about the relationship between caprine and ovine isolates of
Pasteurella multocida, 16S rRNA gene sequencing of 9 goats (5) and sheep (4) isolates were investigated.
Also, capsular type and toxAgene presentation was studied in this paper. All isolates, except one, belong to
capsular type A, and toxA+ strain distributed among strains were isolated from both species. Comparison of
the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed the role of goat as a reservoir for P. multocidato sheep independent of
toxAgenes transmission.
