monocytogenes, but the sequence type
is not yet known,' Motsoaledi explains.
Conclusion: This is the first study of its kind in Iran to determine the sequence types
of the clinical isolates of Salmonella Typhimurium in Tehran hospitals using MLST.
Temporal changes in BEXSERO[R] antigen sequence type
associated with genetic lineages of Neisseria meningitidis over a 15-year period in Western Australia.
KPC-2]-harboring IncFIIKi plasmid from a Klebsiella pneumoniae sequence type
The Wolbachia strain was then assigned a sequence type
(ST), which was the combination of 5 integers corresponding to the allele numbers at the 5 MLST loci (the allelic profile).
However, dissimilarities between same sequence types
could be recognized more easily by FAFLP than the Rns typing (Fig.
In a related study, the scientists also showed that a human GBS isolate--one with the same serotype and sequence type
as those found in fish--is capable of causing infection in fish.
Multilocus sequence types
associated with neonatal group B streptococcal sepsis and meningitis in Canada.
GAS isolates (240 from throat of pharyngitis/asymptomatic cases, 156 from skin infected patients and 11 from RF/RHD cases) were reconfirmed and emm typed by protocol as published earlier (7); 373 isolates showed [greater than or equal to]95 per cent homology with the reference emm types, 16 isolates were identical to sequence types
and 18 (4.
Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) permits differentiation of GBS strains into >700 sequence types
(STs), which are grouped into a few clonal complexes (CCs) (5).
It also includes a highly efficient virtual memory controller which requires only one 16 Mbit SDRAM to decode all picture and sequence types
, with space and bandwidth left over for on-screen-display data.
A total of 4 distinct virulence sequence types
(VSTs) were found (Table 1).
