Table 6 Prevalence and distribution of pESA3 alleles associated with the virulence plasmid and pESA2/pCTU3 plasmids harbored by 26 spice-associated C. sakazakii isolates

From: Draft genomes of Cronobacter sakazakii strains isolated from dried spices bring unique insights into the diversity of plant-associated strains

  1. aNumbers within parentheses are the percentage of PCR-positive strains for each gene locus in relation to the total number of plasmid- harboring spice-associated C. sakazkaii strains
  2. bOnly 24 strains were analyzed by PCR for presence of pESA2 and pCTU3 (MOD1_788569 and MOD1_O123mB strains were not analyzed). Therefore, the percent positive for pESA2 and pCTU3 were calculated using a total number of 24 strains
