Multiple-Locus Variable-Number Tandem Repeat Analysis of Vibrio cholerae in Comparison with Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis and Virulotyping

Abstract

Molecular analysis of Malaysian Vibrio cholerae was carried out using a multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA) assay based on 7 loci of V. cholerae. The discriminatory ability of the assay was compared with pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) using 43 Malaysian V. cholerae isolated from various sources. In addition, the virulotypes… (More)
