Molecular analysis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA from a family of 18th century Hungarians

Abstract:

The naturally mummified remains of a mother and two daughters found in an 18th century Hungarian crypt were analysed, using multiple molecular genetic techniques to examine the epidemiology and evolution of tuberculosis. DNA was amplified from a number of targets on the Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome, including DNA from IS6110, gyrA, katG codon 463, oxyR, dnaA-dnaN, mtp40, plcD and the direct repeat (DR) region.
