  1. Bold letters indicate nonsynonymous mutations
  2. Reference sequences used for comparison with sequences obtained in this study were: D/B-120 (X62918), E/Bour (X52557), F/IC-Cal3 (X52080), G/UW57 (AF063199), H/wash (X16007), I/UW-12 (AF063200), J/UW36 (AF063202), and K/UW31 (AF063204)
  3. ()a common mutations [129C➔T, 184G➔A, 186 T➔G, 195C➔T, 636A➔T] found in C. trachomatis genotype D strains isolated in Sapporo
  4. ()b amino acid changes caused by a cluster of common mutations, denoted by ()a in C. trachomatis genotype D strains isolated in Sapporo
  5. cOne sample of genotype G was confirmed using the forward primer, but substitution 487G➔A could not be confirmed in this sample.
  6. dNucleotide substitutions 1000 T➔G, 1007C➔G, 1011A➔T, and 1017A➔C and insertion of codon AGC between positions 1008 and 1009 were not analyzed in this strain
