paratuberculosis is biochemically relatively inactive and identification is currently based on mycobactin dependency and detection of the insertion sequence IS900 by the means of the polymerase chain reaction (Collins et al 1989).
senegalense can also be distinguished from one another on the basis of histopathological behavior [11], DNA relatedness [13], mycobactin contents [14], chemotaxonomic and biochemical properties [15-17], pyrolysis mass spectrometry [18], and 16S rRNA sequence data [19-23].
