The taxonomic composition of a microbial community can be deduced by analyzing its rRNA gene content by, e.g., high-throughput DNA sequencing or DNA chips. Such methods typically are based on PCR amplification of rRNA gene sequences using broad-taxonomic-range PCR primers. In these analyses, the use of optimal primers is crucial for achieving an unbiased(More)
The synthesis has been performed of ten tetrapeptides of the general formula Dnp-Gly-Gly-X-Arg-OH, where X = Val, Phe, Abu, Asp (OBut), Asp, Met, D-Phe, Ser, Thr, or Trp. The synthesis was carried out with Dnp-Gly-Gly-ONp, activated esters of protected amino acids, and arginine with an unprotected carboxy group. The coefficients of molar extinction of the(More)
Helicobacter pylori infection is exceptionally prevalent and is considered to be acquired primarily early in life through person-to-person transmission within the family. H. pylori is a genetically diverse bacterial species, which may facilitate adaptation to new hosts and persistence for decades. The present study aimed to explore the genetic diversity of(More)
Campylobacter jejuni is widespread in the environment and is the major cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in humans. In the present study we use microarray-based comparative genomic hybridizations (CGH), pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) to analyze closely related C. jejuni isolates from chicken and human(More)
