The base sequences representing human and cow-specific 16S rRNA gene markers identified in the T-RFLP analysis were recovered from clone libraries. The human and cow-specific primers were designed from these sequences and their specificities were analyzed with fecal DNAs from human, cow, and pig. AllBac primer set showed positive results for all human, cow, and pig samples, while human-specific primer set showed positive result only for human sample but not for cow or pig samples. Likewise, cow… CONTINUE READING
