  • a Asterisks denote previously described combinations.

  • b Reference strains and their test H antigens are in boldface.

  • c Published as H21, but H11 and H21 cross-react serologically and it is not clear if absorbed antisera were used in the confirmation of H antigens (16).

  • d A presumed intact fliC53 gene is highly homologous (98%) to fliC40 (15).

  • e Predicted to be O156 according to SerotypeFinder.
