We used DNA restriction fragments, derived from the exotoxin A gene and surrounding sequences, as an epidemiological marker for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Using these DNA fragments as probes in Southern blot hybridizations and/or total genomic digestions, we were able to distinguish greater than 100 different strains of P. aeruginosa. The stability of the marker in vitro was established by using well-characterized strains, which were stored under different conditions and subjected to chemical… CONTINUE READING
