Twelve BstEII ribotypes identified in 47 Corynebacterium diphtheriae isolates collected in the Russian Federation between 1957 and 1987. The figure is composed of ribotype gels exemplifying the different patterns observed in the strain collection. Lane M, molecular weight marker; lane 1, ribotype M11e; lane 2, M11f; lane 3, M13a; lane 4, M7a; lane 5, unique; lane 6, G4; lane 7, unique; lane 8, M11g; lane 9, M3; lane 10, M1b; lane 11, M6; lane 12, M13b.
