AIMS The objective of this study was to investigate the molecular diversity of CTX genetic element within toxigenic Vibrio cholerae genomes and to determine the genetic diversity of V. cholerae population collected in a 6-year period (2004-2009) in Iran. METHODS AND RESULTS The results of mismatch amplification mutation assay (MAMA)-PCR and sequencing showed cytosine nucleotide in positions 203 and 115 in all 50 El Tor V. cholerae strains, which is the same as classical ctxB sequence.
