Bakeri LT 79 1957
The strain was isolated in 1955 from the kidney of an opossum (Didelphis marsupialis) in the state Georgia, United States and described as a new serovar named bakeri, reference strain LT 79 (Galton et al., 1957).
The strain was studied by Wolff and Bohlander (1960), who considered it as a 'subserovar' of L. tarassovi. Since the taxon subserotype was abandoned in 1966 (TSC Moscow, 1966), Bakeri appears as a separate serovar on the list of 1967 (WHO, 1967).
