Genetic diversity among methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates carrying the mecC gene in Belgium.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES A mecA homologue gene, named mecC, has been reported in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from humans and from diverse animal species. We investigated the proportion, and the phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, of mecC-carrying MRSA recovered from humans in Belgium. METHODS A total of 4869 S. aureus isolates… (More)
