rpoB Gene mutations and molecular characterization of rifampin-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from Shandong Province, China.

Abstract

Sixty rifampin (RIF)-resistant and 75 RIF-susceptible Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from Shandong Province, China, were analyzed for rpoB gene mutations and genotyped. Mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit (MIRU) genotype 223325173533 was overrepresented among RIF-resistant isolates. MIRU combined with IS6110 restriction fragment length… (More)
