  • a Strains are arbitrarily arranged by PorA serosubtype. The 2086 gene subfamily was determined by PCR screening as described in Materials and Methods. A dash indicates negative results; ND indicates not done. Country or origin of each neisserial isolate is listed where known. UK, United Kingdom; US, United States. The 2086 gene was sequenced from those strains where a phylogenetic cluster number based on amino acid sequence homology is indicated (see Fig. 1).
