Alterations in the GyrA and GyrB subunits of topoisomerase II and the ParC and ParE subunits of topoisomerase IV in ciprofloxacin-resistant clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Abstract

The presence of fluoroquinolone resistance-associated alterations in topoisomerase II and IV were investigated for 103 nfxC-like type Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates. The most nfxC-like type isolates (98.1%) possessed the substitution of Ile for Thr-83 in GyrA. A single alteration in GyrA (Thr-83-->Ile) was the most frequently detected and the next common… (More)
