Mycoplasma pneumoniae strains traditionally are divided into two types, based on sequence variation in the P1 gene. Recently, however, we have identified 8 P1 subtypes by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. In the present study the P1 gene sequences of three P1 type 1 and two P1 type 2 M. pneumoniae strains were analyzed. A new P1 gene… CONTINUE READING
