Based on the invasive plasmid antigen H gene (ipaH) of S. dysenteriae, one pair of specific primers was designed for PCR assays in this study. The concentrations of dNTP, Mg2+ and primer, dosage of Taq DNA polymerase, annealing temperature and circulating parameter in the PCR amplification system were optimized. In this way, a rapid and stable method of PCR assay for the detection of S. dysenteriae was established. The specificity and sensitivity of PCR were also analyzed. The detection limits of pure culture and genomic DNA in the PCR assay were 1.06 x 10(2) cfu/ml and 106.34 pg/PCR system, respectively. The detection limit for S. dysenteriae in artificially contaminated food samples was 3.21 x 10(4) cfu/ml. These results indicated that the PCR method for S. dysenteriae detection was simple, rapid, high in specificity and sensitivity and suitable for the detection of pathogens in foods caused by Shigella dysenteriae.
