AIMS The analysis by Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE) of the PCR-amplified V3 region of 16S rRNA gene was previously shown to detect and differentiate a large number of human and animal mycoplasmas. In this study, we further assessed the suitability of the technique for epidemiological surveillance of mycoplasmas belonging to the 'Mycoplasma mycoides' cluster, a phylogenetic group that includes major ruminant pathogens. METHODS AND RESULTS The V3 region of 16S rRNA genes from… CONTINUE READING
