A combination of DNA macrorestriction analysis using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and a serotyping method using three panels of monoclonal antibody was used to discriminate 43 epidemiologically unrelated Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates requiring proline, citrulline, and uracil (PCU ؊ ) into 35 groups. This indicates that PCU ؊ isolates of N. gonorrhoeae are not clonal.
