Table 3

Occurrence of ces genes in B. cereus group members tested by hybridization assays. Several probes targeting all CDSs of the ces operon and CDSs from flanking regions (see Table 4) were used to test the distribution of ces genes in the B. cereus group.

a) B. cereus group members are classified as emetic (E), emetic-like (EL) and non-emetic (NE) according to [36]. b) for strain designation and details on strains tested see additional file Table S1; c) X hybridization observed; (X) weak hybridization signal; – no hybridization signal.
