Abstract

Restriction enzyme analysis of PCR-amplified 16S rRNA genes was used to distinguish among clinical isolates of Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Haemophilus aphrophilus, and Haemophilus paraphrophilus which were originally identified by conventional phenotypic methods. This PCR-based method is a reliable and rapid alternative to conventional methods for identification of these bacterial species.
