The MLEE method used was as previously described (8-10); the electrophoretic mobility of 15 constitutive enzymes was analyzed.

At the beginning of this project, the MLST database inadequately represented the diversity of serogroup A meningococci because it contained data for only 36 strains, predominantly from MLEE subgroups I, III, and IV-1 (6).
MLST did not distinguish several subgroups defined by MLEE (I and II, IV-1 and IV-2, III and VIII, V and VII).
