Analysis of Enterococcus faecalis isolates from intercontinental sources by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.

Abstract

Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) were compared in this study of 65 Enterococcus faecalis isolates recovered over a 20-year period from diverse geographic sources. Clonal relationships recognized by PFGE were also recognized by MLEE; however, MLEE recognized as greater number of isolates as belonging to… (More)
