a New spa-types or sequence types detected are shown in bold.

b The MLST was performed in one isolate of each spa-type and the corresponding ST and CC were assumed for all isolates presenting the same spa-type.

c In some cases, not all the isolates of the group presented the indicated characteristics (genes or phenotype). Whenever happened, the number of isolates with this characteristic is indicated in superscript.

d Genes normally physically linked that compound the different egc clusters are included in brackets.

e P: penicillin; E: erythromycin; TE: tetracycline; S: streptomycin; CP: ciprofloxacin; C: chloramphenicol; FA: fusidic acid.
