Abstract

Dot blot hybridization and PCR amplification of 14 Ara(+) and 8 Ara(-) Burkholderia pseudomallei strains showed that type III secretion (TTS) genes were present in all the Ara(-) strains but absent from all but one of the Ara(+) strains. The link between TTS genes and an Ara(-) phenotype suggests a role for TTS in virulence.
