[Detection of two Shiga-like toxins from Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolates by the polymerase chain reaction method].

Abstract

Fourteen isolates of E. coli O157:H7 and five isolates of S. dysenteriae type-1 were examined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the structural genes (slt-I or slt-II), encoding Shiga-like toxins (SLTs). The two primer pairs (V1; 5'AGTTAATGTGGTGGCGAA and V2; 5'GACTGCGTCAGTGAGGTT for SLT-I, V3; 5'TTCGGTATCCTATTCCCG and V4; 5'TCTCTGGTCATTGTATTA for SLT-II… (More)
