Polymorphism of four VNTRs. The polymorphism of VNTRs (SAG2, SAG3, SAG4 and SAG22) is shown by agarose gel electrophoresis of PCR products. The first strain on each gel is the reference strain and the PCR products were loaded alongside a 100 bp DNA size ladder (the sizes in base pairs are shown on the left side of the first panel). The allele number, corresponding to the number of repeats, is indicated under the band.
