Klebsiella pneumoniae is part of the healthy human microbiome, providing a potential reservoir for infection. However, the frequency of gut colonization and its contribution to(More)
A total of 421 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clinical isolates were tested for ceftaroline susceptibility by Etest (bioMérieux). A multidrug resistant phenotype was found in 40.9%, and clonal complex 239 (CC239) was found in 33.5%. Ceftaroline nonsusceptibility (MIC, >1.0 μg/ml) was 16.9% overall. Nonsusceptibility was significantly(More)
Serratia marcescens strain AH0650_Sm1 is a clinical multidrug-resistant isolate from Australia. Here, we report its annotated draft genome comprising 20 contigs. We identified chromosomal antimicrobial resistance genes including a tet(41) variant, an aac(6')-Ic variant, ampC, a metallo-beta-lactamase, and several putative multidrug efflux pumps, as well as(More)
