Detection of Escherichia coli sequence type 131 by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry: implications for infection control policies?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Sequence type 131 (ST131) is a predominant lineage among extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli. It plays a major role in the worldwide dissemination of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli. The ST131 pandemic is mainly the result of clonal expansion of the single well-adapted subclone H30-Rx, which is acquired in hospitals… (More)
