Species-specific sequences at the omp2 locus of Brucella type strains. Academic Article uri icon


  • A DNA sequence analysis of the omp2 locus of Brucella type strains revealed nucleotide differences that can be used for species identification. We developed specific probes which were used to verify the observed differences among the type strains following PCR amplification of portions of the omp2 locus.
