Fig. S1. RAPD fingerprints of Bifidobacterium spp. isolated from maternal (MF) and neonatal faeces (NF) of mother–neonate pair N8, using primers (a) OPA-02, (b) OPL-07 and (c) OPL-16. Isolates highlighted in bold indicate identical Bifidobacterium longum strains isolated 10 days postpartum, which are shared between mother and neonate (isolates MF 4i7 and NF 4i2).
Fig. S2. REP-PCR fingerprints of Lactobacillus spp. isolated from maternal faeces (MF), breast milk (BM) and neonatal faeces (NF) of mother–neonate pair N4, using primer (GTG)5. Isolates highlighted in bold indicate identical Lactobacillus casei strains isolated 12 days postpartum, which are shared between maternal and neonatal faeces (isolates MF 3i7 and NF 3i7).
