MOLECULAR DETECTION OF CAMPYLOBACTER SPP. ISOLATED FROM CASPIAN SEA'S WATER SAMPLES IN NORTH OF Iran

Article excerpt

Background: Campylobacter is one of the main causes of gas- troenteritis in humans. This bacterium can enter into the human body through the consumption of contaminated wa- ter and animal food products. The major purpose of this study was isolation and identification of Campylobacter spp. from Caspian Sea's water in north of Iran.

Methods: Campylobacter spp. was isolated using pret-KB method and then identified by phenotyping tests, which are introduced by Attabay and Corry. Finally, the identification of strain was verified by PCR technique and gene sequencing. Results: The results obtained from isolation of Campylobacters indicated that out of 70 collected samples, 2 (3%) were posi- tive for Campylobacter.

Conclusion: The main way of the entry of these bacteria into the Caspian Sea's water can be thought the household sewages and surface waters pouring into the sea. …
