Figure 5. Alignment of sequenced L10/L12 ribosomal protein DNA; ribosomal protein L10 DNA (bases 1-535), L10/ L12 intergenic DNA (bases 536-584) and L12 DNA (bases 585-720) showing nucleic acid variations between the Kenyan, South African and Asian strains of the bacteria. Showing a 5 base deletion in L10/ L12 intergenic DNA of LM4, UM3, UM4, LM5, LM3 and an eleven base deletion in LH4.

*signifies similarity of the base with the reference sequence, - refers to a deletion, while n refers to a missing base. BLAST 2 version BLASTN 2.2.6 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/)
