We investigated the usefulness of a novel PCR fingerprinting technique, based on the specific amplification of genomic regions, to differentiate 30 Vibrio alginolyticus strains isolated in Sardinian waters. The different profiles obtained were scanned and analyzed by a computer program in order to determine genetic relationships. The results were then compared with the patterns obtained by ribotyping with HindIII, KpnI, and XbaI restriction enzymes. PCR fingerprinting could differentiate the strains analyzed into 12 different patterns, whereas ribotyping with XbaI, which produced the highest number of patterns, generated only 7 different profiles. This study revealed the superior discriminative power of the proposed technique for the differentiation of related V. alginolyticus strains and the potential use of PCR fingerprinting in epidemiological studies.
