Figure 3: Nucleotide sequence alignment and its corresponding amino acid sequences of the polymorphic X region of spa gene in all the five different patterns. Start and end of the polymorphic X region is shown by and symbols, respectively. Individual spa repeats are shown by alternate grey and colourless blocks. Identical residues are shown as dashes and gaps as dots whereas different nucleotides and amino acids are defi ned. Different spa patterns are defi ned on the left hand side
