Abstract

Specific DNA probes based on variable regions V1 and V3 of 16S rRNA of lactic acid bacteria were designed. These probes were used in hybridization experiments with variable regions amplified by using the polymerase chain reaction. In this way, a rapid and sensitive method was developed for the identification and classification of Lactococcus and Leuconostoc species.
