Biotype-specific probe for Vibrio cholerae serogroup O1.


The O1 serogroup of Vibrio cholerae can be divided into two biotypes, El Tor and Classical. Current tests to distinguish between these biotypes are often difficult to interpret. On the basis of the difference in sequence of the hlyA gene in these biotypes, we have developed a simple probe that can easily and reliably differentiate between the two biotypes.
