Sequence comparison of scaffolds (portions of genome sequences reconstructed from end-sequenced whole-genome clones) identified in mcr-1–positive plasmids pHNSH36, pHNZ319S, and pHNSH138 with 2 mcr-1–bearing plasmids pHNSHP45-2 (GenBank accession no. KU341381) and pMR0516mcr (GenBank accession no. KX276657), and contigs identified in mcr-1–positive genomes of Escherichia coli strain NT1 in BRIG (11) (GenBank accession LSBW01000090.1) obtained during analysis of mcr-1–positive Salmonella isolates

Arrows indicate positions and direction of transcription of genes. Reference plasmids pHNSHP45–2 (A) and pMR0516mcr (B) are indicated in black in the outer circles.
