Table 3 Prevalence of the genomic islands among K. pneumoniae isolates

From: Comparative analysis of Klebsiella pneumoniae genomes identifies a phospholipase D family protein as a novel virulence factor

  1. aaccording to ref. [55]. Prevalence of virulence-related features encoded in GI-II, GI-III, GI-IV and T6SS insertion was based on >90% identity and >50% coverage in the length of the genes, using a database of 171 Klebsiella genomes representative of 47 different STs. STs, sequence types.
