Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococci; GBS) are serotyped on the basis of the capsular polysaccharide antigens and subtyped on the basis of the strain-variable and surface-localised c proteins c alpha, c beta, and R proteins. This study compared c beta protein detection and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for beta gene detection, by examining 50 clinical GBS strains. The c beta protein was detected by antibody-based immunofluorescence in a GBS whole-cell assay and Western blotting… CONTINUE READING
