Abstract:Traditional molecular detection methods cannot distinguish Escherichia coli O157:H7 in viable or dead state. In this study, the loop-mediated is other mal amplification (LAMP) method combined with propidium monoazide (PMA) treatment was developed to selectively detect the viable Escherichia coli O157:H7, but not dead cells. Four primers, including outer primers and inner primers, were specially designed for recognizing six distinct sequences on the species-specific rfbE gene of Escherichia coli O157:H7 genome.…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
