Molecular Identification and Typing of Putative Probiotic Indigenous Lactobacillus plantarum Strain Lp91 of Human Origin by Specific Primed-PCR Assays.

In the present scenario, it is now well documented that probiotics confer health benefits to the host and the purported probiotic effects are highly strain specific. Hence, accurate genotypic identification is extremely important to link the strain to the specific health effect. With this aim, specific primed-PCR assays were developed and explored for the… CONTINUE READING
