Why Do Some Human Associated Escherichia Coli Strains Lack Antibiotic Resistance?
E. coli ST lineages 131, 73 and 95 of phylogroup B2 are globally pathogenic, and are proportionally distributed in most hospital and community acquired human extra-intestinal diseases and in the gut. However, several pieces of evidence have shown that ST131 is highly multi-drug resistance while STs 73 and 95 are largely susceptible to antibiotics. Limited information exists to explain this. To investigate this, differences in the genomic diversity of plasmids in the lineages were characterised...[Show more]
