Two molecular epidemiologic methods, IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism (IS6110-RFLP) and 24-locus mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit-variable-number tandem repeat (MIRU-VNTR), are used worldwide in studies of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Conversely, because of its poor resolution, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) is not widely used for MTB. In this study, we improved the 24-locus MIRU-VNTR and PFGE protocols and compared the effectiveness of these approaches…

Introducing the Best Six Loci in Mycobacterial Interspersed Repetitive Unit-Variable-Number Tandem Repeat (MIRU-VNTR) Typing for Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Genotyping.
TLDR
These loci recommended for genotyping Mtb to save time and cost and to ensure the production of reliable results are determined.
Transmission of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis within family households by DTM-PCR and MIRU-VNTR genotyping
TLDR
To reduce transmission, MDR-TB patients should be diagnosed earlier and promptly treated in an effective manner, meanwhile, the close family contacts should be screened for TB infection.
Mycobacterium bovis: From Genotyping to Genome Sequencing
TLDR
The aim of this review is to describe M. bovis genotyping techniques and discuss current standards and challenges of the use of the whole-genome sequencing (WGS) technique for transmission investigation, surveillance, and global lineages distribution.
Understanding the Genetic Diversity of Mycobacterium africanum Using Phylogenetics and Population Genomics Approaches
TLDR
The identified SNPs have the potential to provide insights into the genotype–phenotype correlation and clues for endemicity of Maf in the African population through clustering observed in phylogeny along with high-confidence posterior membership scores obtained during population stratification.
An outbreak of pulmonary tuberculosis and a follow-up investigation of latent tuberculosis in a high school in an eastern city in China, 2016–2019
TLDR
Delayed diagnosis of TB in the index patient may have contributed to the start of this outbreak; lack of post-exposure chemoprophylaxis facilitated spread of the outbreak.
A tuberculosis school outbreak in China, 2018: reaching an often overlooked adolescent population
TLDR
This school-based tuberculosis outbreak among adolescents demonstrates that transmission among individuals in this age group is common and must be prioritised and suggests that identifying and timely diagnosis of smear-positive cases, especially in the early phase of outbreaks, is the key to preventing further spread among close contacts.
Pathogenic Microbial Genetic Diversity with Reference to Health
Latest Comprehensive Knowledge of the Crosstalk between TLR Signaling and Mycobacteria and the Antigens Driving the Process
TLDR
This review presents discussions on host-Mtb interactions in terms of Mtb-mediated TLR signaling and highlights recent discoveries pertaining to these pathways that may help in new immunotherapeutic opportunities.
S0950268819001882jra 1..8
TLDR
This schoolbased tuberculosis outbreak among adolescents demonstrates that transmission among individuals in this age group is common and must be prioritised, and suggests that identifying and timely diagnosis of smear-positive cases, especially in the early phase of outbreaks, is the key to preventing further spread among close contacts.

Mycobacterial Interspersed Repetitive-Unit–Variable-Number Tandem-Repeat (MIRU-VNTR) Genotyping of Mycobacterium intracellulare for Strain Comparison with Establishment of a PCR-Based Database
TLDR
Variable-number tandem repeats (VNTR) was used for fingerprinting of respiratory isolates of M. intracellulare from patients with underlying bronchiectasis to establish a nonsequence-based database for population analysis and showed minimal pattern diversity between VNTR types compared to PFGE.
IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism typing of clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in Madras, south India.
Proposal for Standardization of Optimized Mycobacterial Interspersed Repetitive Unit-Variable-Number Tandem Repeat Typing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TLDR
A discriminatory subset of 15 loci with the highest evolutionary rates was defined that concentrated 96% of the total resolution obtained with the full 24-locus set, and its predictive value for evaluating M. tuberculosis transmission was found to be equal to that of IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism typing.
Comparative Study of IS6110 Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism and Variable-Number Tandem-Repeat Typing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Isolates in the Netherlands, Based on a 5-Year Nationwide Survey
TLDR
VNTR typing has a discriminatory power equal to IS6110 RFLP typing but is in better agreement with findings in a cluster investigation performed on an R FLP-clustering-based cluster investigation, which makes VNTR typed a suitable method for tuberculosis surveillance systems.
Use of Variable-Number Tandem-Repeat Typing To Differentiate Mycobacterium tuberculosis Beijing Family Isolates from Hong Kong and Comparison with IS6110 Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Typing and Spoligotyping
TLDR
VNTR typing, which has many practical advantages over RFLP typing, can be used for epidemiological studies of Beijing strains, however, VNTR-defined clusters should be subtyped with IS6110 R FLP for maximal resolution.
IS6110-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism and Spoligotyping Analysis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Clinical Isolates for Investigating Epidemiologic Distribution in Korea
TLDR
It is found that drug resistance phenotypes were more strongly associated with Beijing family than non-Beijing family (P=0.003), indicating that the authors have to pay more attention to control of M. tuberculosis strains associated with the Beijing family in Korea.
Diversity of Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis Patterns of Mycobacterium abscessus Type 2 Clinical Isolates
ABSTRACT An epidemic of infections by rapidly growing mycobacteria related to surgical procedures between 2004 and 2008 in Brazil was caused by a unique strain showing the Mycobacterium abscessus
Comparison of Variable Number Tandem Repeat and IS6110-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Analyses for Discrimination of High- and Low-Copy-Number IS6110 Mycobacterium tuberculosis Isolates
TLDR
The use of VNTR analysis as an initial typing strategy facilitates further analysis by IS6110-RFLP, and more importantly, VN TR analysis subdivides some IS61 10-R FLP-defined clusters containing low- and single-copy IS6120 isolates.
Secondary Typing of Mycobacterium tuberculosisIsolates with Matching IS6110 Fingerprints from Different Geographic Regions of the United States
TLDR
The data indicate that the IS6110-5′ probe not only is a useful secondary typing method but also probably would prove to be a more useful primary typing method for a genotyping network which involves isolates from different geographic regions.
