In both epidemics periods a clonal structure could be defined by means of MLEE, a characteristic of the population biology of this bacterium during epidemic waves of disease.
Interestingly, the MLEE data showed that this isolate (fourth from the top of Fig.
The MLEE method used was as previously described (8-10); the electrophoretic mobility of 15 constitutive enzymes was analyzed.
meningitidis serogroup A and could replace MLEE as the standard for molecular typing.
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).
