Abstract

In addition to the large virulence plasmid pO157, a novel 38-kb conjugative plasmid, pO157_Sal, was identified and sequenced from an Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak-associated Chinese isolate that shares high similarity with a plasmid in Salmonella enterica serovar Agona. The plasmid was found in 15 of 326 isolates, 12 of which were of the same pulsed-field gel electrophoresis type.
