Identification of a new variable number tandem repeat locus in Mycobacterium ulcerans for potential strain discrimination among African isolates

Author

Abstract
Intra-species discrimination in the highly clonal pathogen Mycobacterium ulcerans was studied in a diverse collection of isolates by PCR amplification of a short sequence repeat locus containing heterogeneous arrays of tri-nucleotide repeats with an ACC consensus pattern. Post-amplification analysis indicated excellent typeability and identified five M. ulcerans alleles, including a unique Angolan type differentiated for the first time among a genetically conserved cluster of African isolates. These results are consistent with previously investigated independent markers, and provide an additional locus for variable number tandem repeat-based typing of M. ulcerans.
