Combining Multiplex and Touchdown PCR to Screen Murine Microsatellite Polymorphisms
The opportunistic human pathogen Propionibacterium acnes is composed of a number of distinct phylogroups, designated types IA1, IA2, IB, IC, II, and III, which vary in their production of putative virulence factors, their inflammatory potential, and their biochemical, aggregative, and morphological characteristics. Although multilocus sequence typing (MLST) currently represents the gold standar...متن کامل
Multiplex-Touchdown PCR to Simultaneously Detect Cryptosporidium parvum, Giardia lamblia, and Cyclospora cayetanensis, the Major Causes of Traveler’s Diarrhea
This study aimed to develop a multiplex-touchdown PCR method to simultaneously detect 3 species of protozoan parasites, i.e., Cryptosporidium parvum, Giardia lamblia, and Cyclospora cayetanensis, the major causes of traveler's diarrhea and are resistant to standard antimicrobial treatments. The target genes included the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein for C. parvum, Glutamate dehydrogenase ...متن کامل
Combining restriction digestion and touchdown PCR permits detection of trace isoforms of histamine H3 receptor.
The conserved sequences of the mouse histamine H3 receptor at the potential alternative splice junctions suggest that the splice isoforms found in guinea pig, rat, human, and hamster may also be present in the mouse. However, the trace amount isoforms are hard to be detected by the regular PCR approach. In this paper, we report a method in which the unspliced long isoform is cut by restriction ...متن کامل
