Population biology of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolated from oropharyngeal carriage and invasive disease.

Abstract:

The population structure of Streptococcus pneumoniae in a sample of 134 carried antibiotic-susceptible isolates, and 53 resistant and susceptible invasive isolates, was examined using a DNA-based version of multilocus enzyme electrophoresis: multilocus restriction typing (MLRT). This involved RFLP analysis of PCR products generated from nine loci of housekeeping genes located around the pneumococcal chromosome. The combination of alleles at each of the nine loci gave an allelic profile or res...
