Figure 4. RAPD (method II) patterns of MG vaccine strains (lanes 1-2) and isolates from house finches (lanes 4-11), and M. imitans type strain (lane 3). DNA base pair size standards are shown on the left. Lane 1 = ts-11; lane 2 = 6/85; lane 3 = M. imitans; lane 4 = K3839; lane 5 = K4013; lane 6 = K4013; lane 7 = K4117; lane 8 = 7994; lane 9 = 1652442; lane 10 = K4058; lane 11 = K4269. An additional RAPD primer set (method II) was used to determine whether method I accurately determined MG strain identities.
