Gallibacterium anatis has been suggested to have a causal role in the salpingitis/peritonitis complex in chickens, beside its isolation from the respiratory tract. As G. anatis strains from different flocks were compared by MALDI-TOF MS proteomic phenotyping it could be demonstrated that in most flocks one clonal lineage was present. This finding is also reflected by data achieved when isolates from different organs within a bird generally belong to the same clonal lineage. In addition, it was also confirmed by two independent experiments, as well as, two MALDI instruments. Altogether, proteomic phenotyping indicates that the nature of a chicken flock may play a certain role in particular clone type selection of G. anatis.
