We present here the draft genome sequences of two colistin-resistant strains belonging to sequence type 74 (ST74) and ST1850, isolated from commercial poultry meat in Brazil. performed using SPAdes 151038-96-9 version 3.9.0 (6). This assembly was curated using Geneious version R9 (Biomatters Ltd., New Zealand) and submitted for annotation using NCBI Prokaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline version 3.2. Multilocus sequence types (MLST), plasmid replicons, antimicrobial resistance genes, and virulence genes were recognized using multiple databases: MLST 1.8, PlasmidFinder 1.3, ResFinder 2.1, and VirulenceFinder 1.5, respectively (http://genomicepidemiology.org/). CF111 and CF341 belonged to ST1850 and ST74, presenting 137 and 96 contigs distributed in genomes of 4,950,681?bp and 5,022,083?bp in size, respectively. In brief, CF111 offered 5,177 protein-coding genes, 55 RNA-coding genes (46 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs, and 7 noncoding RNAs [ncRNAs]), and 314 pseudogenes, with a G+C content of 50.7%, whereas CF341 presented 5,284 protein-coding genes, 64 RNA-coding genes (50 tRNAs, 1 rRNAs, and 13 noncoding RNAs [ncRNAs]), and 356 pseudogenes, with a G+C content of 50.6%. detection of plasmids recognized IncX4, IncFIB, and IncI1 in both isolates. On the other hand, IncFIC and IncFIA were recognized in CF111, whereas IncFII and IncFIB were recognized in CF341. In this regard, IncX4-type plasmids have been key vectors responsible for the dissemination of the gene in strains in food, humans, and animals in Brazil (3, 7, 8). In addition to the gene, while CF111 carried the -lactam resistance gene and CF341 harbored the -lactam resistance gene andaadA2and and in CF341 and and virulence genes 151038-96-9 in CF111. In summary, we statement the draft genome sequences of two colistin-resistant strains belonging to ST74 and ST1850, isolated in 2016 from commercial chicken meat in Brazil. Whole-genome sequence (WGS) analysis indicates that these strains carried the gene on IncX4-type plasmids, as previously reported in food, human, and animal strains from Brazil (3, 7, 8). These 151038-96-9 draft genome sequences could contribute to providing data to better understand the molecular mechanisms leading to the dissemination and successful circulation of strains in human, animal, and food production.
