This paper describes the development and application of multilocus sequencing typing (MLST) and multi-virulence locus sequencing typing (MVLST) methods in determining the genetic variation and relatedness of 43 Vibrio cholerae strains of different serogroups isolated from various sources in Malaysia. The MLST assay used six housekeeping genes (dnaE, lap, recA, gyrB, cat and gmd), while the MVLST assay incorporated three virulence genes (ctxAB, tcpA and tcpI) and three virulence-associated genes… CONTINUE READING
