Abstract

The p1 genes of 60 Mycoplasma pneumoniae clinical isolates were sequenced and compared to previously reported p1 gene sequences. An AGT trinucleotide variable-number tandem repeat was identified that ranged in copy number from 5 to 14 among the isolates. In addition, a novel p1 gene variant named 2c was identified in 6 of the isolates.
