Sequence diversity of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the rRNA operons among different serogroups of Legionella pneumophila isolates.


The genus Legionella is represented by 48 species and Legionella pneumophila includes 15 serogroups. In this work, we have studied the intergenic 16S-23S spacer region (ITS) in L. pneumophila to determine the feasability of using amplification polymorphisms in this region, to establish intraspecies differences and to discriminate Legionella species.
