ACT-6, a novel plasmid-encoded class C β-lactamase in a Klebsiella pneumoniae isolate from China


The purpose of this study was to investigate the phenotypic and molecular characterization of a novel plasmid-mediated AmpC-type β-lactamase in Klebsiella pneumoniae E701 isolated from Anhui province in China. In comparison with the ACT-1, sequence analysis revealed that there were 43 point mutations in the coding gene, and 10 of which led to amino-acid… (More)
