  • a The strains used are PJ1, LM569, LM667, LM657, LM694, and LM624 (Table 1).

  • b The agglutination titer refers to the highest dilution of bacteria giving a positive yeast agglutination reaction. A value of 1 corresponds to a nondiluted bacterial suspension, and 1/16 corresponds to very high agglutination that could be detected even with very diluted bacteria. The minus sign indicates that no agglutination was detected.
