  • a Dot hybridization was carried out at 42°C under high-stringency conditions.

  • b A + indicates that all three probes (vcrD, vscC, and vscN) produced the position signal. The absence of a + indicates a negative signal against all three probes.

  • c Number of strains positive (or negative)/number of strains tested.
