Full-genome sequence of Escherichia coli K-15KW01, a uropathogenic E. coli B2 sequence type 127 isolate harboring a chromosomally carried blaCTX-M-15 gene.

Authors: Zurfluh, Katrin and Tasara, Taurai and Stephan, Roger

We present here the full-genome sequence of Escherichia coli K-15KW01, an extended-spectrum-ß-lactamase-producing uropathogenic strain. Assembly and annotation of the draft genome resulted in a 5,154,641-bp chromosome and revealed a chromosomally contained blaCTX-M-15 gene embedded at the right-hand extremity of an ISEcp1 element in a plasmid-like structure (36,907 bp).
