Strains taken from our collections that have not previously been reported.

C, cervix; B, blood; U, urethra; SF, synovial fluid; P, pharynx; R, rectum; M, male; F, female; +, present; ?, unknown; ∼, approximate data; /, alternative sites of isolation (see Results). The number of Gs in each poly-G and expression status of pgtA are indicated in parentheses. It must also be noted that the on/off status of pgtA expression is tentative as this is predicted based on the numbers of Gs in the poly-G as determined by PCR sequencing.
