Algorithm of PRA-hsp65 patterns based on analysis of the 441 bp fragment of the hsp65 gene. BstEII patterns: 440 bp, 320 bp/130 bp, 320 bp/115 bp. Columns 1 and 2: calculated BstEII and HaeIII fragment sizes in base pairs. Column 3: species names according to . Column 4: PRA-hsp65 pattern type. Column 5: RGN: rapidly growing non-pigmented, RGS: rapidly growing scotochromogen, RGP: rapidly growing photochromogen, SGN: slowly growing non-pigmented, SGS: slowly growing scotochromogen, SGP: slowly growing photochromogen. Column 6: strain(s) used for hsp65 sequencing or reference of the publication describing this pattern.
