Abstract

Based on differences within the yopT-coding region of Yersinia. enterocolitica, Y pseudotuberculosis and Y pestis, a rapid and sensitive one-step polymerase chain reaction assay with high specificity for pathogenic Y enterocolitica was developed. By this method pathogenic isolates of Y enterocolitica can be easily identified and discriminated from other members of this genus. The entire coding sequence of the yopT effector gene of Y. pseudotuberculosis Y36 was determined.
