Molecular probe analysis of Shigella dysenteriae type 1 isolates from 1940 to 1987.


Fourteen strains of Shigella dysenteriae type 1 (Shiga bacillus) isolated from people in diverse locations from 1940 to 1987 were studied. Southern hybridization with three cloned Escherichia coli genes, Shiga-like toxin I (SLTI), frd, and ompF, was used to determine restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) of the genomic DNA of these strains… (More)
