It has been reported in the literature that Neisseria gonorrhoeae DNA is modified by the methyltransferases (MTases) M.NgoI, M.NgoII, and M.NgoIII, as well as three other cytosine MTases and one adenine MTase, even if the corresponding restriction endonucleases are not present. We envisioned the possibility of cloning one of the N. gonorrhoeae MTase-encoding genes for use as a species-specific DNA probe. We therefore undertook a survey of methylation patterns of several clinical isolates of N… CONTINUE READING
