A previously published sequence of the 23S rRNA gene of Coxiella burnetii has been reported to contain an intervening sequence of 444 base pairs (bp). The sequence information on the intervening sequence and the 23S rRNA gene was exploited to develop a specific PCR-based assay for C. burnetii. A primer set was designed that amplified a 477-bp fragment encompassing part of the intervening sequence and part of the 23S rDNA. From all of nine C. burnetii strains tested, a fragment of the expected… CONTINUE READING
