*pMLST, plasmid multilocus sequence typing; ST, sequence type; R, resistant; S, susceptible; NA, not applicable.
†Antimicrobial drug susceptibility to chloramphenicol, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, and quinolones (nalidixic acid and ciprofloxacin). The transconjugants were also resistant to ampicillin and ceftriaxone.
‡pMLST results were compared to those published in the plasmid MLST website (http://pubmlst.org/plasmid).
§STs were designated according to the different combinations of allele variants observed among the IncI1 plasmids.
