  • Genomic fingerprints of Acholeplasma laidlawii, Mycoplasma hominis, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae strains were obtained by Southern blot hybridization of the digested mycoplasmal DNAs with an rRNA gene probe. The hybridization patterns revealed genotypic heterogeneity among A. laidlawii and M. hominis strains and a remarkable degree of homogeneity among M. pneumoniae strains isolated from pneumonia patients during a 10-year period. Genomic fingerprints with the rRNA gene probe can thus serve as… CONTINUE READING
