Molecular analysis of Shigella boydii O1 O-antigen gene cluster and its PCR typing

Tao, Jiang; Wang, Lei; Liu, Dan; Bastin, David A; Genge, Yunqi; Feng, Lu


Shigella is an important human pathogen and is closely related to Escherichia coli. O-antigen is the most variable part of the lipopolysaccharide on the cell surface of Gram-negative bacteria and plays an important role in pathogenicity. The O-antigen gene cluster of S. boydii O1 was sequenced. The putative genes encoding enzymes for rhamnose synthesis, transferases, O-unit flippase, and O-unit polymerase were identified on the basis of homology. The O-antigen gene clusters of S. boydii O1 and...[Show more]
