Genotypic characterization of Ureaplasma species by pulsed field gel electrophoresis

Academic Article


  • We describe the first use of pulsed field gel electrophoresis to genotype human Ureaplasma species. This technique can distinguish between U. urealyticum and U. parvum, differentiate most of the 14 serovars from one another, and identify differences among clinical isolates of the same serovar. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
