A 5' Nuclease Genotyping Assay for Identification of Macrolide-Resistant Mycoplasma genitalium in Clinical Specimens.


Rapid and sensitive detection of macrolide resistance in Mycoplasma genitalium is required for the guidance of adequate antimicrobial treatment. Previous studies have confirmed that single-base mutations at position 2058 or 2059 in domain V of the 23S rRNA gene of M. genitalium result in high-level macrolide resistance. Sequencing of PCR products remains… (More)
