Abstract

pJIE143 (34 kb), from an Escherichia coli ST131 isolate, carries bla CTX-M-15 but could not be typed using the standard PCR-based replicon-typing primer set. Complete sequencing revealed a backbone with similarity to IncX plasmids, including a pir-like gene encoding a π-like replication protein and iterons related to those of other IncX plasmids. The 2.971-kb ISEcp1-bla CTX-M-15-orf477Δ transposition unit often found within Tn2 is inserted just beyond the end of pir, flanked by 5-bp direct repeats.
