All 122 isolates carried virulence factors gapC, hylB, Imb, sagA, scpA, scpB
, ska, skc, skg, and slo; however, virulence factors cba, cfb, cylE, fbsA, fnbA, and pavA were universally absent.
The penetration process of SCPB seems relatively mild compared with that of SCRB as shown in Figures 18 and 19.
In Figure 21, the amounts of energy dissipation differ sharply from each other because the initial kinetic energy of SCRB is much higher than that of SCPB. Both the processes of energy dissipation happened almost simultaneously.

Nineteen of the III-1 bovine isolates appear to lack the scpb-lmb locus because PCR with primers flanking the intergenic locus of lmb and scpB did not produce an amplicon.
Most III-1 bovine isolates in the sample studied here appear to lack the scpb-lmb locus, a finding consistent with that reported by Francken et al., who showed that absence of a putative composite transposon that contains the scpB and lmb genes is a feature of bovine GBS (22).
