  1. Lineage types were obtained from spoligotyping using the SITVITWEB database. a, isolates were identified as T5-RUS1 or Unknown according to SITVITWEB but LAM according to their spoligotype identification type [41]; b, isolates were identified as Ural-1 on the basis of their SIT according to [42]; Numbers in bold indicate disagreement between MLPA and spoligotyping.
