Article Title: Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates from Meningitis: Epidemiology, Virulence and Antibiotic Resistance
Figure Lengend Snippet: Fingerprinting profiles (A to S) of XbaI-digested genomic DNA using the Dice coefficient and UPGMA for Klebsiella pneumoniae cerebrospinal fluid isolates collected in Taiwan. Eight pulsotypes (C, E, H, I, J, N, P, and R) show a Dice similarity coefficient of more than 80%. Corresponding MLST (multilocus sequence typing) and capsule K serotype of each isolate were presented. *One nucleotide change; x, unidentified, non-virulent capsule K types, i.e., not for K1, K2, K5, K20, K54, K57 types.
Article Snippet: Whole chromosomal DNA in agarose was digested with XbaI (Bio-Rad Laboratories, CA., USA), and the restriction fragments were separated in a CHEF Mapper XA System (Bio-Rad Laboratories, CA., USA).
