A group I intron in the SSUrDNA of some Naegleria spp. demonstrated by polymerase chain reaction amplification.

Abstract

The small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSUrDNA) of all described Naegleria spp. was amplified by polymerase chain reaction with universal primers. In all strains of N. andersoni andersoni, N. andersoni jamiesoni, N. australiensis italica and two related strains, and one out of four clusters of N. gruberi, a band of approximately 3.3 kb was obtained. All other… (More)
