Carbapenem-hydrolysing oxacillinases are reported increasingly in Acinetobacter baumannii. This study investigated the role of these beta-lactamases in causing resistance to carbapenems in 83 epidemiologically related and unrelated imipenem-resistant A. baumannii clinical isolates. The isolates were also analysed for the presence of ISAba1 in the promoter region of the bla(OXA-51)-like gene in order to investigate the role of ISAba1 in OXA-51 expression. All clinical isolates contained a bla… CONTINUE READING
