Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the association between ompK36 variants and international high-risk clones in Klebsiella pneumoniae. Fifty-nine sequence types (STs) divided into four ompK36 allele groups (groups A to D) were identified among 185 K.pneumoniae isolates. The major high-risk clones (29 ST11, 13 ST15, 7 ST37 and 1 ST147 isolates) were assigned to group A, while 6 STs (15 ST23, 2 ST65, 3 ST86, 1 ST163, 1 ST373 and 2 ST375 isolates) associated with pyogenic liver abscess were assigned to group C. The genotyping assay developed in this study may be useful for screening of epidemic STs.
