Genetic characterization of a VanG-type vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium clinical isolate.

Abstract

Objectives To characterize, phenotypically and genotypically, the first Enterococcus faecium clinical isolate harbouring a vanG operon. Methods The antibiotic resistance profile of E. faecium 16-346 was determined and its whole genome sequenced using PacBio technology. Attempts to transfer vancomycin resistance by filter mating were performed and the… (More)
