Title: Application of RNA polymerase beta-subunit gene (rpoB) sequences for the molecular differentiation of Legionella species
Volume: 40
Page(s): 2653-8
Year: 2002
Keyword(s): Bacterial Proteins/genetics Bacterial Typing Techniques Base Sequence DNA, Bacterial/genetics DNA-Directed RNA Polymerases/*genetics *Genes, Bacterial Humans Immunophilins/genetics Legionella/classification/*enzymology/*genetics/isolation & purification Membrane Proteins/genetics *Peptidylprolyl Isomerase Phylogeny RNA, Bacterial/genetics RNA, Ribosomal, 16S/genetics Serotyping Species Specificity
Remarks: The nucleotide sequences of the partial rpoB gene were determined from 38 Legionella species, including 15 serogroups of Legionella pneumophila. These sequences were then used to infer the phylogenetic relationships among the Legionella species in order to establish a molecular differentiation method appropriate for them. The sequences (300 bp) and the phylogenetic tree of rpoB were compared to those from analyses using 16S rRNA gene and mip sequences. The trees inferred from these three gene sequences revealed significant differences. This sequence incongruence between the rpoB tree and the other trees might have originated from the high frequency of synonymous base substitutions and/or from horizontal gene transfer among the Legionella species. The nucleotide variation of rpoB enabled more evident differentiation among the Legionella species than was achievable by the 16S rRNA gene and even by mip in some cases. Two subspecies of L. pneumophila (L. pneumophila subsp. pneumophila and subsp. fraseri) were clearly distinguished by rpoB but not by 16S rRNA gene and mip analysis. One hundred and five strains isolated from patient tissues and environments in Korea and Japan could be identified by comparison of rpoB sequence similarity and phylogenetic trees. These results suggest that the partial sequences of rpoB determined in this study might be applicable to the molecular differentiation of Legionella species.

Remarks: Legionella pneumophila and some other Legionella species are capable of causing Legionnaire's disease, a potentially fatal pneumonia. The identification of legionellae by standard laboratory techniques such as culture is difficult and time consuming. In the present work, the DNA sequence of the 23S-5S spacer region was determined for 43 Legionella isolates, and the sequence information was used to develop a species-specific detection system using PCR and reverse dot-blotting which employs just one PCR amplicon to perform genus- and species-specific detection. L. pneumophila serogroups 1-16 as well as 21 non-pneumophila isolates could be identified and differentiated at the species level using this system.

Note:

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
