  1. a New spa-types or sequence types detected are shown in bold.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. d Genes normally physically linked that compound the different egc clusters are included in brackets.
  5. e P: penicillin; E: erythromycin; TE: tetracycline; S: streptomycin; CP: ciprofloxacin; C: chloramphenicol; FA: fusidic acid.
