Development of an allele-specific PCR for Escherichia coli B2 sub-typing, a rapid and easy to perform substitute of multilocus sequence typing

Clermont, Olivier; Christenson, Julia; Daubie, Anne-Sophie; Gordon, David; Denamur, Erick


We developed and validated an allele-specific PCR method for detecting the nine main Escherichia coli phylogroup B2 lineages involved in extra-intestinal infections, which could be used as a substitute for multilocus sequence typing in studies for which the greater resolution at the sequence type level is not needed.
