Mycobacterium tuberculosis Cluster with Developing Drug Resistance, New York, New York, USA, 2003–2009
Figure 3. IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism patterns for tuberculosis patients, New York, New York, USA, 2003–2009. Left lane, molecular mass ladder; lane A, n = 48; lane B, n = 1; lane C, n = 1; lane D, n = 4. Spoligotype results (octal code designation) were 777777774020771 for 54 patients. Twelve-loci mycobacterial interspersed repetitive-unit variable-number tandem repeat results were 225313153321 for 53 patients and 2253131–3321 for 1 patient; the dash indicates that there was no peak at this locus for this 1 patient, and the patient with this isolate met the original cluster case definition.
