Loss of hypermucoviscosity and increased fitness cost in colistin-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae sequence type 23 strains.

In this study, we investigated the effects of colistin resistance on virulence and fitness in hypermucoviscous (HV) Klebsiella pneumoniae sequence typ...

Two Genome Sequences of Klebsiella pneumoniae Strains with Sequence Type 23 and Capsular Serotype K1.
Here, we report the whole-genome sequences of Klebsiella pneumoniae ED2 and ED23, isolated, respectively, from bacteremic patients with liver abscesses (ED2) and patients with primary liver abscess and metastatic meningitis (ED23). Both strains were

Genome Sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae Sequence Type 258 Isolate with Prophage-Encoded K. pneumoniae Carbapenemase.
We present the draft genome sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing sequence type 258 (ST258) K. pneumoniae strain, ST258_FL. Uniquely, strain ST258_FL harbors two copies of the blaKPC gene on the chromosome, one of which is

Sialic acid involved in hypermucoviscosity phenotype of Klebsiella pneumoniae and associated with resistance to neutrophil phagocytosis.
Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) with the hypermucoviscosity (HV) phenotype has abundant capsular polysaccharides (CPS) and usually causes an invasive syndrome. Sialic acid (Sia), a component of CPS in KP strains with the HV phenotype, may be anti-phagocyt

Multiplex PCR for identification of two capsular types in epidemic KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae sequence type 258 strains.
We developed a multiplex PCR assay capable of identifying two capsular polysaccharide synthesis sequence types (sequence type 258 [ST258] cps-1 and cps-2) in epidemic Klebsiella pneumoniae ST258 strains. The assay performed with excellent sensitivity

Complete Genome Sequence of KPC-3- and CTX-M-15-Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Sequence Type 307.
Klebsiella pneumoniaesequence type (ST) 307, carryingblaKPC-3,blaCTX-M-15,blaOXA-1,aac(6')-Ib-cr, andqnrB1 genes, is replacing the predominant hyperepidemic ST258 clone in Italy. Whole-genome and complete plasmid sequencing of one ST307 strain was pe

Population-based surveillance for hypermucoviscosity Klebsiella pneumoniae causing community-acquired bacteremia in Calgary, Alberta.
Les chercheurs ont examiné les caractéristiques des isolats d’hypermucoviscosité en cas de Klebsiella pneumoniae responsable de bactériémie d’origine non nosocomiale. Ils ont constaté la présence du phénotype hypermucovisqueuxdans 8,2 % des isolats d

Draft Genome Sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae AWD5.
Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae strain AWD5, isolated from an automobile workshop in India. The de novo assembly resulted in a 4,807,409 bp genome containing 25 rRNA genes, 81 tRNAs, and 4,636 coding sequences (CDS)

Complete Genome Sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae YH43.
We report here the complete genome sequence ofKlebsiella pneumoniaestrain YH43, isolated from sweet potato. The genome consists of a single circular chromosome of 5,520,319 bp in length. It carries 8 copies of rRNA operons, 86 tRNA genes, 5,154 prote

Draft Genome Sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae Carbapenemase-Positive Sequence Type 111 Pseudomonas aeruginosa Strain.
Here, we report the draft genome sequence of a sequence type 111 Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain isolated in 2014 from a patient at the NIH Clinical Center. This P. aeruginosa strain exhibits pan-drug resistance and harbors the blaKPC-2 gene, encoding 

Draft Genome Sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae Strain (New Sequence Type 2357) Carrying Tn3926.
We present the draft genome sequence of a Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase-producing sequence type 2357 (ST2357) strain, NB60, which contains drug-resistant genes encoding resistance to beta-lactams, fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, trimethoprim
