Abstract

The riboprinting technique (restriction fragment length polymorphism [RFLP] analysis of PCR-amplified ribosomal DNA) was used to study five strains representing three species of the genus . An RFLP analysis following digestion of the amplified small-subunit ribosomal DNA with 25 restriction enzymes revealed that the patterns obtained for all strains of were identical. was different from with seven enzymes. On the other hand, produced the same patterns as with all enzymes, indicating that these organisms have a high degree of similarity. An RFLP analysis of the PCR-amplified spacer sequence between the 16S and 23S ribosomal DNAs gave similar results except that there was a larger number of differences between and the other organisms examined.
