The aims of the study were to determine the genetic diversity of the rare Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans serotype d and to compare the ability of the repetitive extragenic palindromic element (REP)-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with that of the arbitrarily primed (AP)-PCR to discriminate between and within A. actinomycetemcomitans serotypes. The material included 26 A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype d isolates, 3 reference strains, and 21 A. actinomycetemcomitans isolates… CONTINUE READING
