Geographic distribution of widely disseminated Escherichia coli clonal complexes associated with CTX-M-15. Data from strains lacking blaCTX-M-15 are from published studies (17,27,28; http://web.mpiib-berlin.mpg.de/mlst/dbs/Ecoli). E. coli clonal group A (CgA) has been identified as different sequence types (STs), most belonging to ST69 (27).
