摘要

The wide dissemination of plasmids carrying antibiotic resistance determinants among bacteria is a severe threat to global public health. Here, we characterized an extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae NTU107224 by whole genome sequencing (WGS) in combination with phenotypic tests. Broth dilution method was used to determine the minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of NTU107224 to 24 antibiotics. The whole genome sequence of NTU107224 was determined by Nanopore/Illumina hybrid genome sequencing. Conjugation assay was performed to determine the transferability of plasmids in NTU107224 to recipient K. pneumoniae 1706. Larvae infection model was used to determine the effect(s) of conjugative plasmid pNTU107224–1 on bacterial virulence. Among the 24 antibiotics tested, XDR K. pneumoniae NTU107224 had low MICs only for amikacin (≤1 μg/mL), polymyxin B (0.25 μg/mL), colistin (0.25 μg/mL), eravacycline (0.25 μg/mL), cefepime/zidebactam (1 μg/mL), omadacycline (4 μg/mL), and tigecycline (0.5 μg/mL). Whole genome sequencing showed that the closed NTU107224 genome comprises a 5,076,795-bp chromosome, a 301,404-bp plasmid named pNTU107224–1, and a 78,479-bp plasmid named pNTU107224–2. IncHI1B plasmid pNTU107224–1 contained three class 1 integrons accumulated various antimicrobial resistance genes (including carbapenemase genes blaVIM-1, blaIMP-23, and truncated blaOXA-256) and the blast results suggested the dissemination of IncHI1B plasmids in China. By day 7 after infection, larvae infected with K. pneumoniae 1706 and transconjugant had 70% and 15% survival rates, respectively. We found that the conjugative plasmid pNTU107224–1 is closely related to IncHI1B plasmids disseminated in China and contributes to the virulence and antibiotic resistance of pathogens.
