Band pattern obtained by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of selected Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides (LM) isolates. Mw, molecular weight marker at indicated sizes; lines 1 to 9, representative LM isolates from the first outbreak (genotype 1); lines 10, 11, LM isolates obtained from parenteral nutrition catheter and blood from the same patient (genotype 2) and identical to those from 3 different patients infected in the second outbreak (data not shown); lines 12, 13, LM isolates from 2 different patients involved in the second outbreak (genotypes 3 and 4)
