This study reported and analysed the complete sequences of two oqxAB-bearing IncHI2 plasmids harboured by a clinical S. Typhimurium strain and an S. Indiana strain of animal origin, respectively. Particularly, pA3T recovered from S. Indiana comprised the resistance determinants oqxAB, aac(6')Ib-cr, fosA3 and blaCTX-M-14 Further genetic screening of 63 oqxAB-positive Salmonella spp. isolates revealed that the majority carried IncHI2 plasmids, confirming that such plasmids play a pivotal role in dissemination of oqxAB in Salmonella spp..
