Listeria monocytogenes is an intracellular foodborne pathogen that has been associated with severe human illnesses. Various rapid detection methods have been developed for the specific detection of this pathogen. In the present study, a real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay...
The genetic diversity of Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from Finnish patients was studied by typing 508 strains by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis: 311 were isolated from domestically acquired infections and 197 from travel-related infections. The strains were systematically selected from...
To examine the serotype specificity of inlH , which encodes the virulence-associated surface protein InlH related to the intracellular survival of Listeria monocytogenes in mice, the presence of inlH in 337 L. monocytogenes strains, representing 11 different serotypes, was studied. A total of 106...
