Multilocus Sequence Typing and FlaA Sequencing Reveal the Genetic Stability of Campylobacter jejuni Enrichment during Coculture with Acanthamoeba polyphaga
2013 (English)In: Applied and Environmental Microbiology, ISSN 0099-2240, E-ISSN 1098-5336, Vol. 79, no 7, 2477-2479 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Low concentrations of C. jejuni cells in environmental samples make them difficult to study with conventional culture methods. Here we show that enrichment by amoebae co-cultures works well with low concentration samples, and that this method can be combined with molecular techniques without loss of genetic specificity.
