Abstract

Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera is ubiquitously distributed in aquatic environment particularly in coastal waters, estuaries, and rivers. In the present investigation, a multiplex PCR assay was developed for the detection of virulence-associated genes (rtxA, tcpA, ctxA, hlyA, and sto) in environmental isolates of V. cholerae. A total of 90 strains isolated from different environmental sources were screened for the presence of virulence-associated genes. Our results showed that this method represents a simple, cost effective, and robust tool for rapid detection of virulence-associated genes. This multiplex PCR can be used for examining prevalence of virulence-associated genes and hence will be useful for better understanding of epidemiology of environmental V. cholerae.
