PCR amplification of Granulicatella adiacens DNA. DNA was prepared from the bacteria indicated, PCR-amplified with G. adiacens–specific primers, and subjected to agarose gel electrophoresis with ethidium bromide staining and ultraviolet light visualization. Lane 1, water, negative control; lane 2, G. adiacens–positive control, ATCC 49175; lane 3, DH5α Escherichia coli–negative control (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA) 18263–012; lane 4, Enterobacter sakazakii–negative control, ATCC BAA-894 (Americ

DNA amplicons were amplified only from the positive control, the patient’s blood culture, and his mother’s cervical swab specimen. Sequence analysis confirmed all 3 amplicons as G. adiacens.
