The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of the three cdtABC genes responsible for production of cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) in Haemophilus ducreyi and Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans strains. Of 100 H. ducreyi strains from the culture collection of the University of Göteborg (CCUG), 27 strains with low or intermediate cytotoxic titre (< 1 in 10(4)) and 23 of the remaining isolates with a high cytotoxic titre (> or = 1 in 10(4)) were selected. Twenty-nine strains of H… CONTINUE READING
