[Specific DNA probe for detecting Legionella pneumophila].


A fragment of the gene for cytolysin has been cloned. The product of the gene has been earlier identified as an immunoserological marker of Legionella pneumophila. Clones were selected by immunodetection of cytolysin gene product expression. An EcoRI 3.8 kb fragment of the genomic DNA from Legionella pneumophila strain Philadelphia-1 was used as a DNA probe… (More)
