pages: 83-92

DOI: 10.22067/jcmr.v6i2.39090

In present study, a SYBR green based real time PCR assay was developed for specific detection and quantification of Bacillus subtilis in dough used for bread making. New primer pairs were designed to amplify a 212 base pair fragment of the aprE gene. Specificity of these primer pairs was confirmed with conventional and real time PCR methods. Standard curves constructed using the threshold cycle (CT) versus copy numbers of B. subtilis showed good linearity for reference standards of cloned insert (R2=0.999, slope=-3.035) and also induced contaminated dough (R2=0.988, slope=-3.142), and the melting temperature (Tm=82.2 oC) was consistently specific for the amplicon. Limits of detection were 200 and 2000 colony forming units (CFUs) per ml or g of these samples, respectively. This real time PCR offers a fast tool with high sensitivity and specificity for detection and quantification of this rope-forming pathogen in dough used for bread making.
