Strains taken from our collections that have not previously been reported, and

b

strains reported in a study (78) that is also referenced in Table III.

Three-digit strains are from male patients with urethritis and corresponding six-digit (starting with the same three digits) strains are from their female contacts. The “PID 0” series strains are from male partners of PID patients. +, present; −, absent; M, male; F, female; U, urethra; C, cervix. The number of Gs in each poly-G and expression status of pgtA are indicated in parentheses. The reference used is this study. 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.
