Enzyme electrophoresis combined with serogrouping for improved differentiation of Clostridium difficile strains.


We used enzyme electrophoresis to study a set of epidemiologically related and unrelated isolates of Clostridium difficile. The 53 strains belonged to the most frequent serogroups (A1, C, G, H and K). Nine electrophoretic profiles were defined on the basis of five enzymes, and two were characteristic of a single strain. Each serogroup was resolved into two… (More)
