Example text

A dash indicates an insertion or deletion, and a dot indicates a nucleotide that is identical to the nucleotide in the top sequence. , 2007b). , 2007). These targets may display sequence variation by means of two mechanisms: repeat copy number variation (as the result of insertion or deletion of repeats), as well as DNA sequence variation through nucleotide substitutions. One of the main advantages of these targets is the fact that they are analyzed by DNA sequence analysis, rather than through sizing using a high-resolution capillary platform.

These substitutions are in turn the result of nucleic acid substitutions. Analysis of these nucleic acid substitutions are the underlying principle of MLST analysis. Thus, instead of performing phenotypical analyses, DNA sequence analysis of part of a housekeeping gene can now be performed to discriminate between isolates. DNA sequence analysis may even identify nucleotide substitutions that do not affect the mobility of the corresponding proteins. Thus, the number of alleles as determined by DNA sequence analysis (MLST) should be higher than that determined by conventional multilocus enzyme electrophoresis procedures.
