Representation difference analysis (RDA) was applied to isolate a Mycoplasma arthritidis specific DNA fragment. The DNA fragment obtained was verified to be M. arthritidis specific by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and dot blot hybridization tests. The size of this fragment was 194 bp and the nucleotide sequence was also determined.
