Table 2 MAMA assays used to detect the CDC 684 chromosomal inversion

From: An attenuated strain of Bacillus anthracis (CDC 684) has a large chromosomal inversion and altered growth kinetics

Left Inversion Primers Polymorphism Assay Targets
CP Left-inv-F + Right-inv-F A CDC 684
CP Left-inv-F + Left-inv-R G All other B. anthracis
Right Inversion Primers Polymorphism Assay Targets
Left-inv-R + CP Right-inv-R G CDC 684
Right-inv-F + CP Right-inv-R A All other B. anthracis
  1. Where CP = Common Primer; inv = Inversion; F = Forward; R = reverse
