Biomarker signatures of East-African Indian (CAS) tensor sublineages Spoligotype and MIRU signatures of tensor sublineages of East-African Indian (CAS) strains. In addition to deletions in C1 strains, C2 strains lack spacer 22. In addition to deletions in C3 strains, C4 strains lack spacer 35 and have only 1 repeat in MIRU 26. C2 and C3 strains are very close in their MIRU signature, but they differ by variations in MIRU locus 10.
