A total of 13 Borrelia burgdorferi strains (responsible for Lyme borreliosis) and representatives of 3 other Borrelia species (B. hermsii, B. parkeri, B. turicatae) associated with relapsing fever were studied by DNA/DNA hybridization and rRNA gene-restriction patterns. Two genomic DNA hybridization groups were observed which could be differentiated by rRNA gene-restriction patterns. Moreover, the number and size of restriction fragments suggest the existence of a single set of 16 and 23 S rRNA… CONTINUE READING
