Phylogenetic tree of S. aureus STs using the concatenated sequences of the seven MLST genes mainly from human, goats and sheep. ClusterI: mainly from goats and sheep; Cluster II: mainly from human. In clusterI, the STs divided into three sub-clusters (SCs), and the new STs (marked by red filled circles) obtained in this study were clustered in SC1 and SC3. ST398 (marked by black filled diamond), is associated with animals infection [9]; ST522 (marked by black filled triangle) is associated with goats and sheep [2]; ST133 (marked by black filled square) appears to be an ungulate-animal-specific genotype [3]
