A PCR test for detecting Escherichia coli O157:H7 based on the identification of the small inserted locus (SILO157).


AIMS This paper provides identification of a DNA sequence derived from Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 and information on its utilization for detecting STEC O157 by PCR. METHODS AND RESULTS Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA and DNA library were used to identify in STEC O157:H7 (strain EDL 933) a 2634-bp Small Inserted Locus… (More)
