  • a Differences due to insertions in relation to the serovar D ompA sequence were not included in the final nucleotide difference calculations. The sequence for the serovar D ompA was obtained from Stephens et al. (31); sequences for all other ompA genes were obtained from Stothard et al. (33), specifically, accession numbers J03813 (A/Har-13), M17342 (B/TW-5), AF063194 (Ba/Apache-2), M17343 (C/TW3), X52557 (E/Bour 1990), X52080 (F/IC-Cal3), AF063199 (G/UW57), X16007 (H/UW4), AF063200 (I/UW12), AF063202 (J/UW36), AF063204 (K/UW31), M36533 (L1/440), M14738 (L2/434), and X55700 (L3/404).

  • b The GenBank-listed sequences for serovars Ba and G truncate the 25 3′-most ends of these genes. It was assumed that these sequences were identical when compared with the D/UW-3/Cx ompA sequence for the above calculations.
