This study investigated the distribution of mutations in DNA gyrase (gyrA and gyrB) and topoisomerase IV (parC and parE) genes and compared the distribution of these mutations with the distribution of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance (PMQR) genes and extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) production in 101 ciprofloxacin-non-susceptible Enterobacteriaceae(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the prevalence of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance (PMQR) determinants in ciprofloxacin-nonsusceptible Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from patients at a tertiary care hospital in Korea. METHODS A total of 102 nonduplicate isolates of ciprofloxacin-intermediate or ciprofloxacin-resistant E coli (n=80) and K(More)
BACKGROUND The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay, introduced as a fast and sensitive diagnostic method, has been known to be useful in detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Therefore the purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of an in-house PCR assay in the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis by comparing PCR results with those of(More)
Multifunctional carbon-based nanodots (C-dots) are synthesized using atmospheric plasma treatments involving reactive gases (oxygen and nitrogen). Surface design was achieved through one-step plasma treatment of C-dots (AC-paints) from polyethylene glycol used as a precursor. These AC-paints show high fluorescence, low cytotoxicity and excellent cellular(More)
PURPOSE Since November 2006, imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii isolates have increased in Kyung Hee University Hospital in Seoul, Korea. The purpose of this study was to determine the genetic basis and molecular epidemiology of outbreak isolates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-nine non-repetitive isolates of the 734 IRAB strains were investigated in(More)
