Genetic structures surrounding the carbapenem-hydrolyzing oxacillinase gene blaOXA-58 were characterized in a series of OXA-58-positive Acinetobacter baumannii strains isolated from different countries. We showed that in most of the cases, acquisitions of the blaOXA-58-containing overall structure, including insertion sequence elements, may be likely the results of recombination events. In type strain A. baumannii MAD, the genetic structure surrounding the blaOXA-58 gene was bracketed by two 27… CONTINUE READING
