Figure

Computer analysis of a subset of representative HpaI restriction profiles of IncF CTX-M-15 plasmids from Escherichia coli isolates in the Appendix Table. Cluster analysis was done by using Fingerprinting II in Informatix software version 3.0 (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Hercules, CA, USA) and applying the unweighted pair group method with arithmetic averages (optimization 0.5%, tolerance 1.00%). Ph, phylogenetic; ST, sequence type; RFLP, restriction fragment length polymorphism; Can, Canada; Fra, France; Por, Portugal; Swi, Switzerland; Ind, India; Kuw, Kuwait; Sp, Spain.
