Abstract

SUMMARY: The open reading frame of the OprI lipoprotein gene from was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) starting from purified DNA or colony lysates. A fragment of the expected size (249 bp) was detected in all strains from various clinical and geographical origins. The gene could only be amplified in pseudomonads of rRNA group I which are considered to be the authentic genus Digestions with III, II and of the amplified fragments demonstrated a sequence variation in the gene. Colony, dot and Western blots with two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against the lipoprotein I confirmed our PCR results. These findings open interesting perspectives for the molecular taxonomy of the genus and the development of diagnostic tools.
