A phylogenetic tree of class A carbapenemases. A phylogenetic tree of six types of class A capbapenemases: GES (Guiana extended-spectrum β-lactamase), SME (Serratia marcescens enzyme), SHV-38 (sulfhydryl variable lactamase), KPC (Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase), IMI/NMC-A (imipenemase/non-metallocarbapenemase-A), and SFC-1 (Serratia fonticola carbapenemase). Based on the primary sequences, the tree was generated using Clustal Omega [32,33,34] of GenomeNet at Kyoto University Bioinformatics Center (
