  • a All alleles are fljB except where noted.

  • b Phase 2 and phase 3 flagellin antigens that were not tested were 1,2,5; 1,6,7; z34; z37; z46; z47; z50; z56; z58; z64; z66; z67; z68; z70; z72; z73; z74; z75; z76; z77; z78; z80; z82; z83; z84; z86; z87; and z89.

  • c All serotypes belong to S. enterica unless otherwise noted. Subspecies I serotypes are denoted by name wherever possible; serotypes for all other subspecies are denoted by formula.

  • d The genomic location of this allele was not determined. A sequencing template was generated by using primers corresponding to sequences within the conserved regions.

  • e Flagellar antigen 1… indicates an antigen that reacts with 1 complex antisera but not with antisera specific for the secondary antigens of the 1 complex. H:1… represents multiple antigenic specificities and is considered R phase in the Kauffmann-White scheme.

  • f This allele was sequenced from the flpA locus.

  • g Alleles in these serotypes were in the locus opposite from that predicted by the Kauffmann-White scheme, except that the location of the H:z67 allele in serotype Franken (formula I 9,12:z6:z67) was not determined.

  • h The fljB H:z and H:z88 alleles were homologous, with 99.4% nucleotide identity and 100% amino acid identity. These antigens have been noted to be immunologically related.
