Figure 3

DNA sequencing of the nested PCR products of case M09-2475, as illustrated in Figure 2. The 21-base LD2 PCR primer-binding site for B. burgdorferi is marked on the right. A 60-base sequence on the left is validated to be that of a Pusillimonas 16S rDNA based on GenBank database. This is a typical example of environmental bacterial 16S rDNA in patient's blood masquerading as B. burgdorferi 16S rDNA.
