Nucleotide sequence of the gyrA gene of Arcobacter species and characterization of human ciprofloxacin-resistant clinical isolates.
The nucleotide sequence of the gyrA gene of Arcobacter butzleri, Arcobacter cryaerophilus, Arcobacter cibarius, and Arcobacter skirrowii was determined. The deduced GyrA proteins are closely relatedExpand
