Peptostreptococcus micros is a gram-positive anaerobic coccus which, although considered to be a natural commensal of the human oral cavity, is associated with periodontal, endodontal and peritonsillar infections. Identification of the organism has to date relied upon conventional culture methods and biochemical analyses. The purpose of this study was to develop a PCR method for rapid and specific identification of this organism in clinical samples. A pair of primers was selected, each of which… CONTINUE READING
