AIM To establish a PCR-based genotyping method for clinical Klebsiella pneumoniae. MATERIALS & METHODS The prevalence of six serotype markers, 41 large variably presented gene clusters, and seven additional virulence markers were screened by PCR in 327 clinical K. pneumoniae strains from China. RESULTS Detection of serotype markers enabled the identification of capsular serotypes K1, K2, K5, K20, K54 and K57. K. pneumoniae isolates of different origins gave distinct profiles of virulence… CONTINUE READING
