ribosomal RNA

n
(Biochemistry) biochem a type of RNA thought to be transcribed from DNA in the nucleoli of cell nuclei, subsequently forming the component of ribosomes on which the translation of messenger RNA into protein chains is accomplished. Sometimes shortened to: rRNA

Internal fragment of 1500 bp of 16S rDNA gene was amplified using universal primers, 27F-5'-AGA GTT TGA TCC TGG CTC AG-3' and RD1-5'-AAG GAG GTG ATC CAG CC-3' with Initial denaturation 95AdegC for 2 min, followed by 35 cycles of 30 sec.
PCR amplification: Samples were analyzed by conventional PCR Primus-96 Thermal cycler by three different primer sets that amplified 16S rDNA and ITS region of the citrus canker pathogen (Table 2).
Multiple alignment were performed with Mannheimia related species 16S rDNA sequences, available from GenBank (NCBI) database, in ClustalW alignment, and a phylogenetic tree was constructed using the genetic distance model of Tamura-Nei by UPGMA method with 1,000 replicates, including Escherichia coli as outgroup, in the Genious Tree Builder (Geneious version 9.1).
It was negative for all herpes viruses and for 16S rDNA. Meanwhile, with oral steroids and valacyclovir, the patient showed signs of improvement and LE VA improved to 6/15.
Universal primer was used to target the conserved region of 16S rDNA in Mycoplasma and Thermal profiles were done according Mohamed et al., (2018).
Recently, the systematic use of universal 16S rDNA gene sequencing of cultivated bacteria that presented an atypical phenotypical profile paved the way for identifying rare, fastidious, and new microorganisms (1,2).
