The routine polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used for the species-specific detection of related Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) strains characterized by a high level of nucleotide sequence homology. Nucleotide sequences for the 16S rRNA, rpoB, gyrB genes of MTC strains, which were potential markers for their genotyping, were analyzed. The(More)
A set of primers was developed to detect by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) the proviral DNA of bovine immunodeficiency virus (BIV). A short fragment of 101 bp BIV gene was selected as a target for primers; sequences of proviral DNA isolated from both a cell culture with BIV and from lymphocytes of an experimentally infected animal were known for the(More)
Thermodynamic stable inverted repeats, capable of stabilizing nuclease-influenced mRNA, have been determined for M. tuberculosis slowly growing isolates H37Rv and CDC1551 with the completely sequenced genome. The genome of laboratory strain H37Rv may contain 50 pin structures formed by inverted repeats, whose stem varies in length from 11 to 28 nucleotide(More)
The isoniazid resistance of mycobacteria tuberculosis (MBT) is associated with point mutations in the codon 315 of katG gene of MBT. The two PCR-techniques for detection of point mutations in codon 315 have been developed. A use of two sets of primers comprising the additional competitive blocking primer with 3'-terminal phosphate group (in order to(More)
rpoB and gyr genes (and their fragments) of chromosomal DNA of bacteria from Bacillus cereus group - B. anthracis, B. cereus, and B. thuringiensis - which are the potential markers for their genotyping were sequenced and phylogenetic trees were constructed. Sets of primers for species-specific detection of B. anthracis, B. cereus, and B. thuringiensis by(More)
Point mutations associated with isoniazid resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) have been analyzed in codon 315 of the katG gene by conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using primers containing locked nucleic acid (LNA) modified nucleotides. Purity and structure of primers containing 5 LNA monomers of 17 nucleotides in length were(More)
A system of primers has been developed for the diagnosis of meningococcal infection has been developed on the basis of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Specificity and sensitivity of detection of N. meningitidis has been evaluated in analysis of the model clinical specimens. The proposed test system was tried in detection of N. meningitidis in(More)
Complexes of bacteriophage T7 RNA polymerase (RNAP) with a DNA template for transcription elongation were visualized by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Fragment of pGEMEX linear DNA with length of 1414 bp carrying promot- er and terminator of bacteriophage T7 was DNA template for transcription. Promoter and terminator are located unsymmetrically on the ends(More)
