Table 2 Example of the molecular typing results of all isolates obtained from two sows (sows 1 and 9) and two piglets (pig 6 originating from sow 1 and pig 88 originating from sow 9) from farm C

From: Genetic diversity of livestock-associated MRSA isolates obtained from piglets from farrowing until slaughter age on four farrow-to-finish farms

  1. aVNTR code of the repeat region of the 5 genes clf A, clf B, sdr C, sdr E, and SIRU21.
  2. All isolates belonged to spa type t011. The origin, sampling event, SCCmec cassette type, the MLVA numeric code, MLVA cluster or MLVA type number in case of a non-clustered MLVA type, and pulsotype is given for all isolates of each animal. Isolates (originating from the same animal at different sampling events) with the same characteristics were grouped together).
