This study investigates the molecular mechanisms of colistin and carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae ST101 strains. The three K. pneumoniae carried blaCTX-M-15, blaTEM-183, and blaSHV-106 genes and two coharbored blaOXA-48. As for colistin resistance, the isolates had amino acid substitutions in PmrA/B and a truncated mgrB gene in one isolate.
