Previous studies have shown that the increased prevalent ST764 clone in China, Japan, and other Asian areas. However, the knowledge of the genetic features and virulence characteristics of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) ST764 in China is still limited. In this study, we identified 52 ST764-SCCmec type II isolates collected from five cities in China between 2014 and 2021. Whole genome sequencing showed that the most common staphylococcal protein A (spa) types of ST764 in China...
