In this study we investigated the genotypic characteristics of some locally isolated strains of B. burgdorferi by three different methodologies: restriction endonuclease analysis (REA), Southern blot hybridization with whole DNAs from Borrelia strains and Southern blot hybridization with rRNA 16 + 23S genes derived from E. coli. REA fingerprintings were… (More)
To evaluate the diffusion of Borrelia burgdorferi in Tuscani (Italy) 720 ticks were collected and subsequently cultured for Borrelia burgdorferi. A strain of Borrelia burgdoferi was isolated from one tick; this being the first such reported identification in Central-Southern Italy.
Four Borrelia burgdorferi strains isolated in the same restricted geographic area share different protein patterns on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The use of polyclonal rabbit antisera and a battery of monoclonal antibodies directed toward the immunodominant proteins OspA, OspB, and pC also revealed different epitope… (More)
