Table 3 Re-identification using multigene sequence-based typing, distribution of hsp65, ITS sequevar analysis, and insertion elements

From: Molecular analysis of clinical isolates previously diagnosed as Mycobacterium intracellulare reveals incidental findings of “Mycobacterium indicus pranii” genotypes in human lung infection

  1. PRA, PCR restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, ITS internal transcribed spacer
  2. aTwo species were not distinguished by previously published hsp65 code, but code N6 identified in this study was different between the two species
  3. bPCR results of insertion element are indicated as positive(+) or negative(−)
  4. cFour isolates identified as M. intracellulare were positive for IS1311
