Single amino acid substitutions in the 81 bp core-region of the rpoB gene responsible for conferring rifampicin (RIF) resistance (Insertions and deletions that confer the RIF-resistance phenotype are not depicted). Amino acids are represented with single letter abbreviations. Changes in codon Ser531 and His526 account for more than 70% of the mutations with RIF resistance (depicted in shaded ellipses).
