Establishment and Application of a Dual TaqMan Real-Time PCR Method for Proteus Mirabilis and Proteus Vulgaris

the technique has already been applied to the detection of P. mirabilis (Liu et al. 2019). At present, 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequencing, selective media, biochemical identification, and serological tests remain the mainstay modalities for distinguishing between strains of P. mirabilis and P. vulgaris (O’Hara et al. 2000). In this study, we used a dual TaqMan Real-Time PCR for the rapid and accurate identification and classification of P. mirabilis and P. vulgaris in food samples. Experimental

Developing a real-time PCR diagnostic method for a potential threat to chrysanthemum, Paratylenchus dianthus

. kumamotoensis are known to inhabit in many chrysanthemum growing areas (Iwahori et al., 2008) and Pratylenchus may cause chronic damage to chrysanthemum (Kobayashi, 1995). Chemical treatments including nematicides, such as fosthiazate, are popular means to control nematode damage in Okinawa, however, nematode diagnosis in a chrysanthemum field is not quick and easy. Koyama et al. (2016) reported a low cost and high-throughput approach to quantify Pratylenchus spp. with the real-time PCR method by using pre

Application of real-time PCR and melting curve analysis in rapid Diego blood group genotyping

The paucity of appropriate reagents for serologic typing of the Diego blood group antigens has prompted the development of a real-time PCR and melting curve analysis for Diego blood group genotyping. In this study, we phenotyped 4326 donor blood samples for Dia using semiautomated equipment. All 157 Di(a+) samples were then genotyped by PCR using sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP) for DI*02 because of anti-Dib scarcity. Of the 4326 samples, we simultaneously tested 160 samples for Dia and Dib

Detection of Coxiella burnetii and Francisella tularensis in Tissues of Wild-living Animals and in Ticks of North-west Poland

Abstract This work presents results of the research on the occurrence of Coxiella burnetii and Francisella tularensis in the tissues of wild-living animals and ticks collected from Drawsko County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship. The real-time PCR testing for the pathogens comprised 928 samples of animal internal organs and 1551 ticks. The presence of C. burnetii was detected in 3% of wild-living animals and in 0.45–3.45% (dependent on collection areas) of ticks. The genetic sequences of F

Comparison of Methods Used for the Diagnosis of Epstein-Barr Virus Infections in Children

The accurate diagnosis of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infections is important, as many other infectious agents or diseases can cause similar symptoms. In this study, sera of pediatric patients who were suspected to have an EBV infection, were sent to Eskisehir Osmangazi University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Clinical Microbiology, and investigated by IFA, ELISA, immunoblotting and Real-time PCR. The performances of these tests were compared with IFA. The rates of agreement between ELISA and

Molecular characterization of the Pratylenchus vulnus populations on cereals in Turkey

Vovlas, 2007). Molecular techniques as RAPD-PCR and sequencing of D2 to D3 expansion segments of the 28S rRNA was used for the identification of P. vulnus on different plant species (Subbotin et al., 2008; Bakooie et al., 2012; Lopez-Nicora et al., 2012). Moreover, real-time PCR provides sensitive identification of the species with species-specific primers using 1/128 of the DNA of one nematode (Huang and Yan, 2017). Pratylenchus vulnus (Allen and Jensen, 1951) (walnut root lesion nematode) has been

Assessment of the relative number of copies of the gene encoding human neutrophil antigen-2a (HNA-2a), CD177, and a homologous pseudogene by quantitative real-time PCR

from leukocytes of 12 subjects. The number of copies of exon 2 of CD177, an exon that is unique to this gene, and the number of copies of exon 9, an exon that is found in both CD177 and the pseudogene, was assessed with quantitative real-time PCR. The ratio of the number of copies of sequences homologous to CD177 exon 9 to the number of copies of exon 2 was 1.5 or greater in 7 of the 12 subjects, suggesting that both CD177 and the homologous pseudogene were present. The ratio of exon 9 to exon 2 in

Principles of PCR-based assays

DNA-based assays are powerful tools to predict the blood group of an individual and are rapidly gaining in popularity.  DNA, which can be extracted from various sources using commercial kits, is amplified by PCR to obtain a sufficient amount of the target of interest for analysis.  There are different types of PCR assays: standard single PCR (followed by RFLP or sequencing), allele-specific PCR, multiplex PCR, and real-time PCR.  Microarray platforms are a newer application of
