The Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi Johnson, Schmid, Hyde,
Steigerwalt & Brenner, was isolated from the {*filter*} of a dusky-footed wood rat,
Neotoma fuscipes Baird, in the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California.
Antigenic, protein, and molecular analyses demonstrated that the isolate varied
slightly from most isolates of B. burgdorferi from northern California and was
clearly distinct from other species of Borrelia that are endemic to the state.
This is the first reported isolate of B. burgdorferi from southern California
and demonstrates that the Lyme disease spirochete is enzootic in mountains near
the major human population center of the state.
