Discrimination of Campylobacter jejuni isolates by fla gene sequencing.
Comparison of the entire coding sequence of flaA (1,764 nucleotides) from 15 isolates of Campylobacter jejuni showed two regions of high variability, one region approximately from base positions 700Expand

Bacteriologic characterization of 36 strains of Roseomonas species and proposal of Roseomonas mucosa sp nov and Roseomonas gilardii subsp rosea subsp nov.
We used a polyphasic approach (sequencing analysis of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene and phenotypic analyses) to characterize 36 strains of Roseomonas species isolated from blood. Five strains,Expand

Molecular characterization of the gene encoding H antigen in Escherichia coli and development of a PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism test for identification of E. coli O157:H7 and O157:NM.
Recent outbreaks of disease caused by Escherichia coli O157:H7 have focused much attention on this newly emerged pathogen. Identification of the H7 flagellar antigen is critical for the confirmationExpand

Identification of “Haematobacter,” a New Genus of Aerobic Gram-Negative Rods Isolated from Clinical Specimens, and Reclassification of Rhodobacter massiliensis as “Haematobacter massiliensis comb.
ABSTRACT Twelve strains of gram-negative, nonfermenting rods recovered mainly from septicemic patients were studied using conventional and molecular methods. The phenotypic profiles of these strainsExpand

Multicenter comparison of levels of antibody to the Neisseria meningitidis group A capsular polysaccharide measured by using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
There is no standard immunoassay for evaluating immune responses to meningococcal vaccines. We developed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to measure total levels of antibody to NeisseriaExpand
