PCR identification of Trichophyton mentagrophytes var. interdigitale and T. mentagrophytes var. mentagrophytes dermatophytes with a random primer

Journal of Medical Microbiology 46(12): 1043-1046
PCR identification of Trichophyton mentagrophytes var. interdigitale and T. mentagrophytes var. mentagrophytes dermatophytes with a random primer
A random primer, 5'-GAGCCCGACT-3', in the arbitrarily primed polymerase chain reaction (AP-PCR) was used to show that the 2 common T. mentagrophytes varieties (var. interdigitale and var. mentagrophytes can be clearly identified on the basis of their characteristic DNA band patterns.
