Fingerprinting of Nigerian Helicobacter pylori isolates by plasmid profile and PCR.

Abstract

Plasmid profiling and digestion of amplified PCR product of ureA genes were used to determine genomic variation in 56 strains of Helicobacter pylori isolated from patients with peptic ulcers and subjects with gastritis recruited in Lagos and Ife, Nigeria. Twenty-five (45%) of the strains were found to harbour plasmids ranging in size from 0.9 kb to > 10 kb… (More)
