Detection of Cryptococcus neoformans DNA in tissue samples by nested and real-time PCR assays


Detection of Cryptococcus neoformans DNA in tissue samples by nested and real-time PCR assays



Clinical and Diagnostic Laboratory Immunology 9(2): 461-469

Two PCR protocols targeting the 18S rRNA gene of Cryptococcus neoformans were established, compared, and evaluated in murine cryptococcal meningitis. One protocol was designed as a nested PCR to be performed in conventional block thermal cyclers. The other protocol was designed as a quantitative single-round PCR adapted to LightCycler technology. One hundred brain homogenates and dilutions originating from 20 ICR mice treated with different azoles were examined.
