Inducible erythromycin resistance in staphlyococci is encoded by a member of the ATP‐binding transport super‐gene family
A Staphylococcus epidermidis plasmid conferring inducible resistance to 14‐membered ring macrolides and type B streptogramins has been analysed and the DNA sequence of the gene responsible forExpand

Antibiotic‐resistant acne: lessons from Europe
Summary Background Propionibacterium acnes and P. granulosum are widely regarded as the aetiological agents of inflammatory acne. Their proliferation and metabolism are controlled using lengthyExpand

Distribution of genes encoding erythromycin ribosomal methylases and an erythromycin efflux pump in epidemiologically distinct groups of staphylococci.
Erythromycin-resistant staphylococci can be divided into two phenotypic classes based on their pattern of cross-resistance to other macrolides, lincosamides and type B streptogramins. StrainsExpand

Msr(A) and related macrolide/streptogramin resistance determinants: incomplete transporters?
The gene msr(A) confers inducible resistance to 14-membered-ring macrolides and type B streptogramins (MS(B) resistance) in staphylococci. The encoded hydrophilic protein (Msr(A)) is 488 amino acidsExpand

16S rRNA Mutation Associated with Tetracycline Resistance in a Gram-Positive Bacterium
ABSTRACT A genetic basis for tetracycline resistance in cutaneous propionibacteria was suggested by comparing the nucleotide sequences of the 16S rRNA genes from 16 susceptible and 21 resistantExpand

Detection of transposon Tn5432-mediated macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B (MLSB) resistance in cutaneous propionibacteria from six European cities.
Forty-five cutaneous propionibacterial isolates from six European cities were found to be highly resistant to all macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B antibiotics, including the ketolideExpand

Clinical resistance to erythromycin and clindamycin in cutaneous propionibacteria isolated from acne patients is associated with mutations in 23S rRNA.
The genetic basis of erythromycin resistance in cutaneous propionibacteria was determined by comparing the nucleotide sequences of the peptidyl transferase region in the 23S rRNAs from 9 susceptibleExpand

Antibiotic resistance patterns of aerobic coryneforms and furazolidone-resistant Gram-positive cocci from the skin surface of the human axilla and fourth toe cleft.
Samples of skin surface bacteria from 28 healthy subjects plated directly on to selective and non-selective media revealed that the proportion of aerobic coryneforms and furazolidone-resistantExpand

Characterisation and molecular cloning of the novel macrolide-streptogramin B resistance determinant from Staphylococcus epidermidis.
A total of 110 staphylococcal isolates from human skin were found to express a novel type of erythromycin resistance. The bacteria were resistant to 14-membered ring macrolides (MIC 32-128 mg/l) butExpand

Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of antibiotic‐resistant Propionibacterium acnes isolated from acne patients attending dermatology clinics in Europe, the U.S.A., Japan and Australia
Background Propionibacterium acnes is the target of antimicrobial treatments for acne vulgaris. Acquired resistance to erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracyclines has been reported in strains fromExpand
