Representative polymerase chain reaction single-stranded conformational polymorphism (SSCP) patterns of rifampin resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains. Lanes: 1, 18, molecular weight 174ΦΧHaeIII; lanes: 2, 17, M. tuberculosis rifampin-susceptible control strain H37Rv; lanes 3, 4, 5 (MICs 2,8,64 µg/mL), pattern 1 rifampin-resistant strains with a pattern indistinguishable from that of M. tuberculosis H37Rv; lanes 6,7,8 (MICs 2, 8, 2,048 µg/mL), pattern 2a; lanes 9,10,11 (MICs 2048, 256
