  1. aAPI 20 Strep panel: VP, acetoin production (Voges Proskauer); HIP, hydrolysis of hippuric acid; ESC, β-glucosidase hydrolysis (esculin); PYRA, pyrrolidonyl arylamidase; αGAL, α-galactosidase; βGUR, β-glucuronidase; βGAL, β-galactosidase; PAL, alkaline phosphatase; LAP, leucine aminopeptidase; ADH, arginine dihydrolase; RIB, ribose; ARA, arabinose; MAN, mannitol; SOR, sorbitol; LAC, lactose; TRE, trehalose; INU, inulin; RAF, raffinose; AMD, amidon; GLYG, glycogen
  2. bn (y), n indicates the total number of isolates with the respective API 20 Strep code and (y) number of isolates from fur animals with that code
  3. cIncludes the reference strains S. halichoeri “subsp. hominis” CCUG 61265 and CCUG 67100
  4. dThe reference strain S. halichoeri subsp. halichoeri CCUG 48324T
  5. eConsensus profile shows reactions that are common to all isolates and biological variation in reactions between the isolates (n = 49 canine isolates, n = 23 fur animal isolates, and the reference strains (CCUG 48324T, CCUG 61265 and CCUG 67100); + positive, negative; V(+) ≥ 90% of isolates positive; V(±) 40–60% of isolates positive; V() ≥ 80% of isolates negative
