Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) of genomic DNAs from 49 clinical isolates of Shigella sonnei were analyzed by using a modified restriction endonuclease analysis procedure to investigate the genetic variability of this species. After cleavage with the restriction enzyme HaeIII or RsaI, DNA samples were electrophoresed in polyacrylamide gels and the RFLP patterns were visualized by silver staining. The results showed that among 20 strains associated with sporadic cases of… CONTINUE READING
