Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans strains of serotype b and with a deletion of 530 bp in the promoter region of the leukotoxin gene (JP2 clone) are known to be associated with severe periodontitis. Our study was aimed to detect virulence genes of A. actinomycetemcomitans strains obtained from patients living in four German cities with different proportions of immigrants.
