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 type 23 (ST23) strains. Colistin-resistant mutants were developed from three colistin-susceptible HV K.

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

Genome Sequences of Two Carbapenemase-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae ST258 Isolates.
Klebsiella pneumoniae, an ESKAPE group (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species) pathogen, has acquired multiple antibiotic resistance genes and is

Effect in virulence of switching conserved homologous capsular polysaccharide genes from Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype K1 into K20.
The capsular polysaccharides in different serotypes of Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) coded by the (CPS) gene cluster are characterized by a conserved and a hyper-variable region. We performed a virulence study by switching genes in the highly conserved

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

K2 capsular serotypes of Klebsiella pneumoniae.
A single multiplex PCR assay targeting seven virulence factors and the wzi gene specific for the K1 and K2 capsular serotypes of Klebsiella pneumoniae was developed and tested on 65 clinical isolates, which included 45 isolates responsible for commun

A Case of Ventriculitis Associated with Renal Abscess Caused by Serotype K1 Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Recently, serotype K1 Klebsiella pneumoniae has been a major agent of an invasive syndrome characterized by liver abscess and its metastatic infection. Extrahepatic infection and its characteristics in patients with renal abscess caused by K. pneumon

Liver abscess associated with severe myopathy caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype K1 in Romania.
Liver abscess was diagnosed in a man presenting with fever, chills and severe myopathy. The K. pneumoniae isolated from blood cultures belonged to the K1 serotype. The patient responded favourably to percutaneous drainage of the abscess and antibioti

Delay in Human Neutrophil Constitutive Apoptosis after Infection with Klebsiella pneumoniae Serotype K1.
Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype K1 is a major cause of invasive syndrome defined by liver abscess with metastatic infections at other body sites. This culprit is known to be resistant to neutrophil phagocytosis and bactericidal activity. We hypothesiz

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)
