  • Does blood of healthy subjects contain bacterial ribosomal DNA? JOURNAL OF CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY Nikkari, S., McLaughlin, I. J., Bi, W. L., Dodge, D. E., Relman, D. A. 2001; 39 (5): 1956-1959


    Real-time PCR methods with primers and a probe targeting conserved regions of the bacterial 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) revealed a larger amount of rDNA in blood specimens from healthy individuals than in matched reagent controls. However, the origins and identities of these blood-associated bacterial rDNA sequences remain obscure.
