Recently, we introduced a new method for rapid screening of bacterial species- or subspecies-specific DNA probes, named “inverted dot blot hybridization screening method”. We then applied this method to develop species- or strain- specific DNA probes for Prevotella intermedia and Prevotella nigrescens. In those studies, among 96 candidate DNA probes which were screened by the new method, 5 probes were confirmed as being putatively strain-specific : 3 probes for P. nigrescens 9336 (ATCC 33563), one for each p. intermedia ATCC 25611 and one for P. nigrescens G8-9K-3 (ATCC 49046). In the present study, we evaluated by Southern blot analysis a DNA probe Pi29-L, one of the 96 candidate probes described above, whether it is specific for the strain ATCC 25611 off. intermedia. Our data show that the probe Pi29-L is potentially P. intermedia ATCC 25611-specific, which can be useful for the detection and identification of the strain, particularly in maintenance of the strain.
