  • a The number of clones in each REP-PCR pattern for the isolates of each HOT, the identifier (ID) number of the representative strain (RS), the type of RPS (if present), and the number of coaggregations for each RS with coisolated streptococcal and nonstreptococcal RSs are listed. For example, 4 isolates of S. infantis HOT 638 were obtained from subject 2 which displayed 2 distinct REP-PCR patterns, with 2 isolates falling into each pattern. One isolate from each pattern was designated a representative strain, and those isolates were given strain-representative strain numbers 3 and 4. Strain 4 reacted weakly (w) with anti-serotype-4 antibody, but a recognition motif could not be assigned. This strain coaggregated with 3 other coisolated streptococcal RSs and 2 nonstreptococcal RSs. nt, not tested.
