Abstract provided by Publisher
Several studies have observed that a conventional PCR protocol using primers LM1 and LM2 for the identification of gene hlyA Listeria monocytogenes generates non-specific PCR amplifications and false positives. For this reason in this study, we provide a modified PCR protocol that improves the specificity of the LM1 and LM2 primers
