  1. Analysis of acquired human cytomegalovirus infection by polymerase chain reaction.

    Article - En anglais

    We used the polymerase chain reaction and primers corresponding to three regions of the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) genome to study HCMVs isolated from 16 children attending a single day-care center and the father of two children in the same center.

    When we analyzed isolates with primers for the pp65 and major immediate-early genes, we observed nearly uniform amplification yielding products of predicted sizes.

    By contrast, primers for the a sequence demonstrated variability among HCMV strains, supporting the use of these primers as an epidemiologic tool.

    Analysis of a-sequence products from two isolates demonstrated 50 to 70% nucleotide homology with the a sequence of HCMV Towne strain DNA.
