Evaluation of restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the UL10-UL13 genomic region for rapid identification of human cytomegalovirus strains

Abstract

A sensitive semi-nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was established which allows rapid identification of human cytomegalovirus strains directly on clinical specimens, thereby permitting virus isolation and propagation on cell cultures to be avoided. The assay is based on restriction analysis of PCR products derived from the polymorphic UL10-UL13 region… (More)
