Design and evaluation of PCR primers which differentiate Escherichia coli O157:H7 and related serotypes.

Abstract

AIMS To develop methods to differentiate Escherichia coli O157:H7 and related serotypes by the use of amplicon length polymorphism (ALP) analysis based on identifying DNA sequence deletions within highly homologous regions of three sequenced E. coli strains. METHODS AND RESULTS Potential primer locations along the ancestral genomic backbone were… (More)
