Regression coefficients for pKPC2 and pNDM1 plasmid conjugation frequencies between donor-recipient pairs in a study of carbapenemase-encoding plasmids in clinical Enterobacterales isolates and hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae, Singapore*

Taxonomic relatedness (model parameter) pKPC2
Mean Bootstrap 95% CI Mean Bootstrap 95% CI
Same strain (β0) −1.73 −1.824 to −1.610 −2.31 −2.405 to −2.212
Same species (β1) −1.38 −1.599 to −1.147 −1.56 −1.771 to −1.317
Same genus (β2) −1.01 −1.162 to −0.866 −2.09 −2.258 to −1.907
Different genus (β3) 0.04 −0.1165 to 0.1988 −1.94 −2.086 to −1.808

*log base 10 conjugation frequencies and their bootstrap 95% CI as described in for the regression equation and fitting procedure are shown.
