We developed a method of identification of Listeria monocytogenes based on colony hybridization with nonradioactively labeled DNA probes, represented by the hly and inlA virulence-associated genes. The procedure described in this paper results simple, rapid, specific and reproducible. Since it can be performed in a short time, the above technique can be applied to detect L. monocytogenes from different source and constitutes a noteworthy and alternative tool to identify this gram-positive pathogenic bacterium.

Abstract

We developed a method of identification of Listeria monocytogenes based on colony hybridization with nonradioactively labeled DNA probes, represented by the hly and inlA virulence-associated genes. The procedure described in this paper results simple, rapid, specific and reproducible. Since it can be performed in a short time, the above technique can be applied to detect L. monocytogenes from different source and constitutes a noteworthy and alternative tool to identify this gram-positive pathogenic bacterium.
