Analysis of SXT element in V. cholerae O139 strains isolated isolated from the recent epidemic in Bangladesh (lanes 5–9) and in previously isolated O139 strains between 1992 and 1998 (lanes 1–4). Genomic DNA was digested with BglI and probed with the SXT gene probe. Lanes 1, 2, and 4 show restriction pattern corresponding to SXT genotype A, lanes 3 shows SXT genotype B, and lanes 5–9 represent SXT genotype C. Numbers indicating molecular sizes of bands correspond to 1-kb DNA ladder (BRL).
