Comparison of PCR ribotyping and multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA) for improved detection of Clostridium difficile

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 3191483
PMID: 21961456
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2180-11-217

[…] The full-length sequences of C. difficile QCD-32g58 and C. difficile 630 were compared using VNTRDB software [] to find tandem repeat loci in the genome. Tandem repeats with a repeat length >2 bp and ≥70% consensus match were initially selected for screening by PCR from the BCRC17678 and BCRC […]


Multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis for molecular typing and phylogenetic analysis of Shigella flexneri

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 2806262
PMID: 20042119
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2180-9-278

[…] ession no. AE005674), S. flexneri serotype 2a strain 2457T (GenBank accession no. AE014073) and S. flexneri serotype 5 strain 8401 (accession no. CP000266) were explored for potential VNTR loci using VNTRDB computer software developed by Chang et al. []. As a result, 50 loci were selected for further evaluation. In order to maximize the number of VNTR markers for S. flexneri, another search on fiv […]
