A primer pair was designed to selectively amplify a fragment of the Acinetobacter 16S rRNA gene from environmental samples by PCR. 16S rRNA gene products were only obtained in PCRs with DNA from members of the genus Acinetobacter and not with DNA from other bacterial species. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of the Acinetobacter 16S rRNA gene amplicons enabled discrimination between different Acinetobacter species. PCR using the Acinetobacter primer pair allowed detection of Acinetobacter in soil with a detection limit of 10(4) cells g(-1) soil, but attachment of the GC-clamp …
