  • a Sequence and enzyme data apply to theKlebsiella-transconjugant pair as a whole.

  • b Amino acid abbreviations: A, alanine; D, aspartic acid; E, glutamic acid; G, glycine; H, histidine; I, isoleucine; K, lysine; L, leucine; M, methionine; N, asparagine; P, proline; Q, glutamine; R, arginine; S, serine; T, threonine; V, valine; W, tryptophan. Nucleotide abbreviations: A, adenosine; C, cytosine; G, guanosine; T, thymidine. The consensus numbering scheme for group 2 (molecular class A β-lactamases) (1) is used.
