Four PCR-based DNA fingerprinting techniques were compared for their ability to identify at the species level a heterogeneous collection of isolates belonging to the six valid Listeria species. 16S rDNA-RFLP analysis identified all species and 16S rDNA-SSCP analysis identified almost all species. Also, isolates with unusual biochemical characteristics and/or unusual antigenic composition could be identified correctly. rRNA-intracistronic length polymorphism analysis suffered from high… CONTINUE READING
