Sequence alignment of region corresponding to the 3´ portion of pks15 and 5´ portion of pks1 in various Mycobacterium tuberculosis genotypes. A) M. tuberculosis strains isolated from cerebrospinal fluid. B) M. tuberculosis strains isolated from sputum. Letters in brackets refer to IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism patterns: BJ, Beijing; SB, single banded; FB, 2–5 bands; NB, Nonthaburi; H, heterogeneous. The 7-bp insertion is shown in boldface, and the start codon of the pks1 gene i
