The Mycoplasma pneumoniae cytadhesin P1 genes from two groups of clinical isolates that display restriction fragment length polymorphisms were cloned and sequenced. Within each group the nucleotide sequences were identical, but two major differences were detected between the groups. These two stretches of sequence divergence were located in multiple-copy regions of the P1 gene and resulted in considerable amino acid changes.
