Improved diagnostic PCR assay for Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae based on the nucleotide sequence of an outer membrane lipoprotein.

Abstract

The gene (omlA) coding for an outer membrane protein of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotypes 1 and 5 has been described earlier and has formed the basis for development of a specific PCR assay. The corresponding regions of all 12 A. pleuropneumoniae reference strains of biovar 1 were sequenced. Alignment of the sequences revealed conserved terminal and… (More)
