Figure Lengend Snippet: Major structural features of plasmids pCA08 (ST131, bla CTX-M-14 ), pCA14 (ST131, bla CTX-M-15 ), and pCA28 (ST44, bla CTX-M-15
Article Snippet: A major difference between pCA08 and pKF3-140 is that, in the region located downstream of the pemKI genes, bla CTX-M-14 is identified on pCA08, while aacC2 resides instead on pKF3-140. bla CTX-M-14 and its environment (IS Ecp1 and IS 903 ) together with the iroN gene located downstream of IS 903 constitute a functional transposition unit typical for the bla CTX-M-9 group genes and have been reported mostly in bla CTX-M-14 -carrying plasmids such as pETN48 ( ) and pE66An , as well as in plasmids harboring bla CTX-M-17 (pIP843, ), bla CTX-M-19 (pILT-3, ), and bla CTX-M-24 (pKP96, ) ( , ).
